TANGY TROPICAL CHIC FAUX WINDOW CARD - August Stamp Camp

Hi, Stampers!
     This is the 4th we created at August Stamp Camp.  Being a big fan of palm trees and tropical climes (except here in Indiana), I just love this Bundle and the coordinating DSP.  Send me an email or comment for a FREE printable project sheet.  Let's get started!
