Here's the lineup:

My inspiration for this card came from my Close to my Heart Moon Doggie papers. These tropical papers are from a couple of summers ago and I still LOVE them. To give the trunk of my palm tree a little texture, I dry embossed it and then sanded it. It now has a fuzzy feeling. The picture isn't so great, but the embossed sentiment on the basket is "Life's a Picnic."
To create this card, I used the Moon Doggie papers as I already said. I also used the Campin' Fever stamp set from Close to my Heart, the Potpourri Basket cartridge for my Cricut to create my fun palm tree and some rick rack from my stash.
