Summertime!! Yes it is!! Super hot outside here in Florida...so a perfect day to stay inside where it is cool and do a little creating. Today's card was created for the "beach life" challenge from the Inspired By team. I used both their sketch and their inspirational photo. This card also fits the tic tac toe board from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge. My three "in a row" runs down the left side...Birthday theme, Tropical feel, Distressed element. Two elements on this card fill the "distressed element" that is call for...all the torn/distressed card stock that creates my sand & surf, and if you look closely at the paper piecing on the surf board you will see some distressed designer paper was used.
My palm trees are from Stampin Up's Friend Like You stamp set and the surf board and sentiments are from Verve (a company that no longer exists but I still enjoy their stamps).
#bethegift challenge: Host a summertime BBQ with some friends...invite someone new...welcome them in. (keep is small and social distance...somehow we are gonna have to learn to LIVE with this new normal covid-19 has created)
