To adhere the ocean scene, I used foam tape and laid it down, sticky side up. Then I adhered the pieces and trimmed the excess foam tape away.

Then I die-cut the palm trees using Onyx cardstock. (The light in my craftroom made the Onyx paper look lighter than it actually is.)

Next, I die-cut my background on Bright White cardstock to give the background some interest.

I added the ocean scene to the center of the pierced background, then adhered the palm trees on top. I finished with the sentiment and some Dew Drops.
