Seize the Birthday #191

Today's card was created with the current Seize the Birthday Challenge in mind.  The theme this go around is one that this Florida girl I can totally do.  Tropical!

I always love the opportunity to play with my greenery dies so I pulled out a set with a tropical vibe and got started.  I fiddled around with different design ideas and in the end, came up with this card, 

I die cut out the leaves and flower from scrap cardstock and mounted them onto a white panel.  I ran the card base through my die cutting machine using an embossing folder to create the texture on just the front side.  I cut down the panel to give me a nice wide border and adhered it to the front of the embossed card using craft foam.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in white onto a scrap of black cardstock and then added the glossy enamel dots for interest.
