Anyway, my niece, who lives in Hawaii is having a birthday in a couple of weeks, which means I Had to get a card done pronto as it takes forever to get anything shipped over there.
I decided to use the Sweet Sunday Sketch as my inspiration
I had recently bought some small stamps from Lizzie Ann Designs that had a "hawaiian" theme, so I decided to use the Hula Girl to make a little likeness of my niece. I needed some kind of background for the little Hula Dancer so I decided to set her on the beach in front of the waves. The only thing that you can't really see in the photo is the chalking that I did for the sky.
Instead of doing a traditional banner that said Happy Birthday on it, I decided to go with a row of Hibiscus flowers, since anyone who has been to Hawaii knows these things are everywhere.
I'm still practicing a lot with my copics, and I'm not all that great at it yet, but I'll get there in time. Hopefully my niece will like the card.
