Mojo Monday 197 Summer Card

My Friend Rona had the nickname of Summer when she was a camp counselor.  She loves Coconut and anything tropical.  She was the inspiration for my card.  I started with the above Mojo Monday Sketch.
Base of my card is 4.25" square Kraft Paper
Layer 1- Red Card Stock 4" Square
Layer 2 Scrap Hibiscus Paper 3.75" Square
Layer 3 Red Card Stock 2.75" Square
Layer 4 White Card Stock 2.5" Square
I rounded all the corners and punched holes in the top left to tie ribbon through.
I stamped 3 small flowers on yellow card stock and cut out.
For the Coconut I punched a 1 3/4" circle of Brown Card-stock and White Card-stock.  I used the large oval to take off the top portion making the white slightly larger.  I embossed the brown piece.
For the Cherry I punched an extra small circle in red and used the stem from the two step bird punch.
The leaves are the wings from the same punch.  I cut a straw and used pop dots and red tap to secure the coconut.  It does remind me of summer!
