Hau 'oli la hanau!
...means Happy Birthday in Hawaiian. A friend of mine wanted me to make a tropical themed card for her sisters birthday. I have absolutely nothing tropical in my craft mess so I started hand drawing some palm trees. Then.... I was stumped. I was over at my friend Jacilynn blog reading away and hopped on over to the Digishack where she is a DT for. They have these super cool digi images that I thought would be simply perfect for this card. I now have bought my very first thing online! I had quite a bit of frustration trying to get the image the proper size for my card. One big deep breath and I finally figured it out. I used the stair step fold to try and have a 3D-ish type effect, did a lil trimming around Surf-Lani, added some torn paper and distressed ink... and Wah-La... HAU 'OLI LA HANAU!
