Hello Sunshine!



Hello everyone! Here is a card that I made for a couple of challenges. I don't know about you, but when I look at this card, I TOTALLY want to be where ever this place is! LOL!
I cut the palm tree's from Paper Doll Dress Up and did some inking on them. The swim suit and trunks were cut from Life's A Beach and I added the clothespins which are from Baby Steps. I tore strips of paper for the sand and ocean. For the sun, I used a ribbon spool and traced it on some paper and cut it out. I added some twine and strung it tree to tree and added some bling to bikini top. To finish I stamped the sentiment in the sand.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Exploring Cricut- Summer Fun with 3 Cricut cuts, 2 pattern papers, and 1 embellishment
Celebrate The Occasion- Welcome Summer
Paper Playtime- Anything Goes

SUPPLIES
My Craft Spot- Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set and Kraft Twine
Cricut- Life's A Beach, Paper Doll Dress Up, Baby Steps

Hi Gigi, fabulous card and just what we need to lift our spirits. Under inches of rain and been blowing a gale here, actually blew my tree down! so I'd love to be wherever this is. A wonderful scene.
Hope you're keeping well.
Hugs Sue W.
