Paper Dolls - Challenge #8

 When I started this card, I was very excited. However, I got frustrated when I couldn't figure out how to use the colors together. The cardstock sat on my desk, and every time I walked by, I was hoping to have an idea smack me upside the head. 

Finally, after deciding on a ripe avocado base, I realized THAT was my problem. I switched it up a little and decided to play with a friend's stamps (SU's Fifth Avenue Floral). I stamped the flowers with Chocolate Chip (SU) on Hawaiian Shores. I cut them out and arranged them along the front of the card. Although I didn't do it intentionally, I like that it covers the seam between the ripe avocado and Hawaiian Shores. I added a bit of bling to just spice it up a little. Overall, I think it turned out pretty well.
