Sing a happy hello

Hi Peeps here's another cutie I found on Simon Says Stamp Shop...she's sing
I like her Hawaiian look...
For this card I was inspired by Anyone for Anya and Frends Challenge- Photo
 
Wow look at the clear blue sea and the coconut trees....I want to go there for a holiday!
So for my card I choose to use the colours blues and greens.
I have also used Jen's Deconstructed sketch 15

And here is my card .....ta da
I started with a white cardstock as my base and stain it,
 with Tim Holtz's  broken china distress stain.
( saw his video- it's so cool wanted to give it a try.I love it!)
It gives the effect of the sea water.
The paper is Basic Grey's Oxford collection.
The starfish ribbon is from my  ReallyReasonableRibbons ,
August ribbon club pack .Just nice to use for this card.
Have embellished the card with blue gems,ribbon and flowers.
The small punch out flowers are leftovers of a boarder punch,Have used Wild Orchid Crafts FS00147 Deep Turqoise Cherry Blossom and blue gypsophila flowers and Prima flowers for the tag.
the leaves is a quickutz's die.
I inked her flower and her instrument orange red for a tropical look.
Have also added glossy accents and stickles.
For the inside I just layered the DP add a text on the circle and accented it with gems and a flower.

Would like to send this card in for these challenges
