Tropical Treasures!

How does a pineapple fit into a "Flowers and Foliage" theme?  Well, a flower formed and was pollinated, then the fruit grew, and the foliage on the top can be cut off and grown into another plant! So see, it does fit.  Okay, maybe I'm pushing it a little, but I haven't shared this great card with you yet and I wanted you to see it!  It's a combination of the Dreamweaver Pineapple Stencil (DWLL482) in the background, and the Stampendous Tropical Pineapple Stamp (P281) as the focal point. They go together perfectly!

It could be a Bon Voyage card, or Wish You Were Here card from your Hawaiian vacation (although that would be kind of cruel). Best of all, it would make a GREAT Welcome to the Neighborhood, or New Home card.
