W hen I was a child we had a row of royal palm trees across the front of our property. Since that time, they have been my favorite trees.
I love living in the Appalachian Mountains but every day I still miss being near a large body of salt water. To create this card I began with a Very Vanilla card base. I then added a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock. My next layer is water color paper. For the wash I used three colors: sky--Pool Party and Coastal Cabana; sand--Crumb Cake. I embossed the palm trees in gold. I finished the card by adding a small strip of burlap ribbon, a sentiment, and one embellishment.
