Kitchen SInk Stamps: Aloha!

Put on your sunglasses!!! This is a bright one!
This was such a simple and fun card to make. Did you know that the pineapple is the symbol of hospitality? I only know that because Todd was in the hospitality business before he made the switch to finance. The hotel where he worked (The Desmond in Albany) had pineapples all over. I collected pineapples for awhile, so I was SO excited when this stamp came to live at my house (GRIN).

This would be a great thank you note for someone who you went to visit - thanks for your hospitality!

Stamp first layer in the lightest color (banana), then step two in saffron, and stamp the third layer in the deepest color (summer sun). The stem is also stamped in caramel, then rust, then close to cocoa is the the final layer. I used basic black for the sentiment.
The green card is part of the DCWV pack I picked up at my local craft store. I stamped the big palm leaf in versamark and rubbed SU! green galore chalk on the paper (poppin' pastels) with a dauber.
The cuttlebug I used on the coral layer was floral frenzy. I layered the black above and below the coral, tied on some fun green sheer ribbon. I added the baubles in the bottom corner. Simple and fun!
