Pop Of Paradise stamp set - Stampin Up

Often i walk into my craft room wanting to make a project but after spending time choosing my papers or the stamp set i want to use i come to a complete block as to what to make with them.
The Stampin Up catalogue is not only full of amazing products, it's full of inspiration too.

The idea for this card came when browsing the catalogue, they have used the 'Pop of Paradise' stamp set to create a cute box (page 43 in the annual catalogue) so i tweaked it slightly and turned it into a card.

Do you know i think it's the first time i have used 'So Saffron' cardstock that i can remember! I used the same colour ink and randomly stamped pineapples all over the cardstock. 
Next onto some scrap 'Whisper White' i stamped 3 leaves in 'Pear Pizzazz', a flamingo in 'Flirty Flamingo', and the 'Hello' in 'Marina Mist'. Each of these was then fussy cut using some scissors apart from the 'Hello' which i used a circle punch for. 

The gold sequin trim and the cut images are then layered around each other, glue dots help keep the sequin trim in place and dimensionals gave depth on some of the images so it wasn't too flat to look at. 

I really like having the different textures and layers to make a card more interesting.
