Day 234 - Imagine This!

Ok.  I promise.  This is the last card for the night.  Here's my card for day 234 at 365 Cards. We were to make a card that uses palm trees, a feature of palm trees, or what comes to mind when we think of palm trees.  WEEELLLLLL...they remind me of my need for a much needed vacation.  I've been wanting so badly to take a cruise or just escape to an island.  That hasn't happened to I just dream.  I do get some inspiration from my trips to Florida.  The main thing I remember are the various fresh fruits.  I love, love, love fruit.  Mangos, grapefruit, watermelon...I could go on and on. card is based on the things I like in Florida AND what I dream of when I finally get to take my trip.

This is a card I'm going to send someone when I go.  It says, "Wish you were here!". The final card is 5" x 5".  I embossed both sentiments on the card and added a ribbon and buttons for added interest.  I also added some doodling around the edges of the fruit.  The corners of the card are rounded on the top and bottom.
Happy Scrappin'!
