Enjoy life and coconut ;)

Hey everybody, I made another card based on the tropical theme, this time a bit different. As I write this post, it is pouring outside and very dark and gloomy, but i am having fun with this tropical card :D
I started with the coconut first, I cut out a circle using a white card stock, and masked the top and sponged it with 3 different shades of green, starting with the lightest first, and finishing with the darkest shade the last. I fussy cut a straw and used a foam to make an umbrella, and added those behind the coconut, and used a foam adhesive to lift up the coconut to stand out in the focal point.
I then went on and used my custom made stamps, palm trees, and stamped only partially, just the palm leaves on one side. Finally stamping the sentiment from STAMPlorations - Trendy butterflies, I think it goes well with the card, we should ENJOY , with all our heart, whether it is a coconut or our life!
Hope you all like this simple card.

 In my opinion, this would make a perfect masculine card, with the coconut on it.

  1. You are rocking the tropical element with these cards, Rahmat! I'm not sure I like that you shared that incredible beach photo. Groan! Who wouldn't rather be there?! I'm delighted to hear that you were able to experience that beach for yourself a year ago and I hope you have a fun holiday soon wherever you go! Hugs, Darnell
