Waterfront + Fruit Basket = Birthday in Paradise

I'm loving this new set, Waterfront!  It arrived just in time to make a birthday card for my sister who is celebrating her birthday in Hawaii!  Couldn't wait for her actual birthday so gave it to her early!  It reminds me of a time we were together sipping a fruity cocktail from a Grand Wailea pineapple cup -- didn't stay at that hotel, but the beach in front of it is a favorite of ours and they are happy to sell the drinks to anyone! I've only used the more tropical look but the Waterfront set works for mountain scenes as well.

Since I've already given the card to my sister and I failed to make note of the colors I used I'm going from memory for the supplies.

In addition to the Waterfront stamp set, I used the Fruit Basket Bundle for the pineapple.  The Itty Bitty Punches are truly itty bitty and I LOVE THEM! I used the straw from a retired set, 3 Cheers for You.

The greeting was easy to curve.  The Fruit Basket set is photopolymer so it was easy to place on the clear block and mirror the curve of the circle dies.  I love the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
