Hello Kitty Aloha Birthday

Here's a fun birthday card made a Hawaiian friend.  Appropriately the card has a Hawaiian theme and a Hello Kitty image.  Finished card is 6 x 6 and is a easel style card. The Hello Kitty image is a Free SVG cut from one of the SVGcutting Blog Hops. A few dies were used for this card: Taylored Expressions Sunny Days Cloud Die, Jaded Blossom Tropical Dies, and Jaded Blossom Tropical SVG cut file Palm Trees. EK Success 3/8" Circle Punch used for the coconuts and Small Flower Punch used for the flowers on Hello Kitty.  Aloha and Surf Board SVG cut file from My Scrap Chick Hula Bears Collection.   Card base and mat is two shades of shimmer Blue from Bazzil.  Kraft card stock used for the "sand". Multi color diagonal stripe paper used for the surf board from Doodlebug 6x6 Sunkissed pack. Stampin-Up Beyond the Basics background stamp (retired from 2001) is used throughout the card on the sand and coconuts. This is the front of the card:
