Growing up in San Diego, I was privileged to be a frequent visitor of Balboa Park. I was doubly blessed to have grandparents living close by, who loved taking my brother and me to the park. We discovered a lesser known, tropical area, which was thrilling to explore, Palm Jungle. Thanks for the memories, Mimi and Archie.

Palm Jungle

 

As soon as I saw this week’s challenge at Global Design Project, “A Day At the Park,” I knew I would get to use my “new to me” Tropical die.

 

I couldn’t wait to see how this die would look, cut from some Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. The blue sky is from a piece of Tranquil Textures DSP, which I glued to the back of the cut-out section of Wood Textures. Then, I glued this layer to a Gray Granite card base, which blended with the Wood Textures DSP.

 

I thought about adding green, but decided on Shimmer White cardstock. The bird, perched on the “t,” is from a Birds & Blooms die, and “thanks” is from the Well Written die set. Can you see how they sparkle?

 

The final detail was the five little pearls.
