South Pacific

Happy Saturday Scrappers & Crafters. Today I will be showing you a card I just created for CFC #38 over at CAS-ual Fridays.

This is red carpet challenge that has not one but two "Oscars" up for grabs this week. Not only do entrants have a chance to win the coveted "V.I.P" button for your blog but you also will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer with CAS-ual Fridays & become a Temp with the Girl Fridays~insert school-girl squeal~

Here is my card for this weeks challenge...
  My favorite movie of all time is Gone With The Wind & I wanted to do something with that theme BUT when I was looking through my paper I spotted the GORGEOUS Tropical Travelogue paper pack collection from Graphic 45 I just knew instantly which movie theme I wanted to go with...South Pacific. This classic movie/musical is another favorite of mine and the G45 Tropical Travelogue papers go with this perfectly! See for yourself from the pic below...

I love the vintage feel of this paper...the colors are so rich and make you feel as if you really are on a tropical island in the South Pacific. I fussy cut the Toucan from another sheet in the collection & added some dimension dots on the backside so it would "pop" from the beach scene a bit. Here's a closer look..
This ribbon from May Arts is just gorgeous & goes so well with this paper collection. 
They also have coordinating chipboard tags that go with the Tropical Travelogue collection. I just inked up the edges a bit in some coordinating Aqua & added some natural twine. 

And now for the inside....
I like to carry the theme from the front to the inside of my cards so I just wrapped the May Arts ribbon around the front into the inside. 
There are some beautiful tropical fish prints on the other side of the blue paper...I have an idea for a project with that paper but that's for another post : ) I thought by adding the blue on the would mimic the feel of the ocean from the front. I added some more of the yummy ribbon with a staple in the corner. Here's a closer shot of that....
Love it!!

And one last look at my South Pacific classic movie inspired card for the CAS-ual Fridays CFC#38 challenge...

I hope you enjoyed looking at this beautiful card & had a "mental" vacation to some tropical isle while looking at the beautiful beach scene..I know I find myself doing that every time I flip through this collection of amazing papers.
