CARD: Timeless Tropical

Good morning!  I wanted to share a card today that we made at my Stamp Club in February.  


I absolutely LOVE the Tropical Oasis Suite!  It's one of my favorite suites from the Occasions Catalog!  But, for some reason, I get a block anytime I sit down to stamp with it!  Luckily, others haven't had this problem! :-)  I CASE's this card from Marelle Taylor -- please check out her beautiful card HERE.

Here are the supplies used on this card:

SUITE: Birthday Bonanza
