*UPDATE: Barbara Chmura is the winner of the gift card! CONGRATS Barbara!

This card is a completely different take on the Pineapple Perfection stamp set & Pineapple Perfection dies! We think it's fun to come up with something out-of-the-box! This floral wreath is made up of the extra flower images from the stamp set, that were colored first with Zigs, and then die cut out with the coordinating dies!

In this next card we have watercolored the pineapple crown & floral base, plus added a nice wash behind the pineapple. We love that the size of the pineapple fills the full card, and really makes a statement!

Again, be sure to leave us comment below to be entered in our giveaway!

P.S. We just LOVE Kathy, and are so happy to be a part of this fun blog hop!
THANKS KATHY!!!
