Watch out for that...

Howdy friends,
I have another project to go with this week's theme. Know what it is yet???
Here's the card front:
This is Hula Anya colored with Copics. She's so cuuute! Love how she's working the coconut bra!
I used this Club Anya & Friends Sketch:
And when you open it...

POP goes the coconut!
Mmmmm, I LUUUUV coconut! The kind you get from the tropics is sooo yummy! And as an official coconut connoisseur, let me tell you that not all coconuts are the same.

Again, I used the Sizzix Ball die. I cut the main parts out of coconut bark (aka brown textured cardstock) & only the top piece in white for the coconut meat & left a bit of that showing. Popped in a straw I trimmed to fit inside (sorry, I only had blue straws) & a little umbrella & we're ready to Luau! The umbrella would have to come out when closing the card, but the straw will tuck in there nicely :)
Here are a few more peeks:
I cut out the letters with my Cricut using the Life's a Beach cart. This is such a cute font :) This card is just callin' me & reminding me that summer vacation is almost here. I've just got to hang for 1 more week :) then I get to bust out MY coconut bra! ewww, just kidding ;)

Fun Fact: Falling coconuts kill 150 people every year which is 10 times the number of people killed by sharks. Now you're one step closer for that Jeopardy championship :)

Thanks for popping in today. I'm off to eat some coconut gelato!
Gotta Go!
