"Aloha" Card

Here's a card I made for a very special person who is leaving tomorrow to return to the mainland.  I'm really sad to see her leave as she is very sweet, pleasant, soft-spoken, and humble.    
Aw shucks, there's a bit of a shadow on this pix as I took this shot in a bit of a rush.  

For this card, I used the following fun products:
"Primula Blooms" die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking
"Gentle Leaf" die by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking
Spellbinder dies
Edge Punch by Martha Stewart
Embossing folder by Cuttlebug
"Aloha" sentiment by Amy R Stamps
Pop Dots
Ribbon by Offray
Bead charm which I made
Rhinestone by Mark Richards

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cards - Challenge 22 - Tons of Layers
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Challenge 115 - Flower Power
Pin and Tack - Challenge 10 - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Bearly-Mine Challenge - Challenge 89 - Dies and/or Punches

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you Have a Scrap Happy Day!

The farewell card that you made for you friend that will be moving to the mainland is very sweet and pretty. I am sure she will be touched by you taking time to make her such a lovely card.

It's never fun to have to say "good-bye" to a friend. I'm sorry to hear that one of your friends will be moving. Hopefully both of you will be able to KIT and visit each other.

Beautiful card, Karen! The combination of flowers, colors, embossing and lace you used for your card really reminds me of a Hawaiian style quilt... a perfect card to say "aloha" and a lovely reminder of the islands.
