Stand Tall Pineapple Card

Hello! So close to the weekend, not that I have any plans, but I just really feel I need a break.  With school starting so soon, I feel overwhelmed....but I don't know with what!  We have most of the supply shopping done, and all the clothes purchased, but I feel like I should be doing something.

I guess this is anxiety.

But today I'm sharing a card I made with a new Sizzix die I recently purchased with some birthday money from my dad.
This is for my little cousin who is currently going through a lot at the moment.  I know the outside seems a little plain but just wait - plus, I loved that it came with the perfect sentiment too.
The card opens so cute.  I did have trouble with those "marks" or "indentations" or whatever, left when the die goes through the Cuttlebug - know what I mean?  Not sure if there is a secret to avoid those, but they are more noticeable on the inside.  So I wrote my message on the white areas to cover up all the wrinkles/marks/indentations.

So that's it for me.  I'm off to worry about stuff that doesn't currently exist.

This meets the following challenges: Classic Design Team August Challenge: Anything Goes (must be on a DT), Crafts Galore Encore: Anything Goes, Crafty Gals Corner: Tropical Colors, and Mod Squad Challenge: Shaped Cards.

I love it - marks and indentations weren't even noticed until you mentioned it, just sayin' :) This is so beautiful - more so that you made it with someone special in mind to brighten their day. So thoughtful of you! Good luck with school- 3 weeks to go and I'm SO BUMMED!! NOT. READY.
