Summer Day

Hello Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Today I would like to show you a summer card that I made with a file from SVGCuts called Spring Street Beach Stand-up Scene Card.

And following my good friend Lisa's idea, instead of making just one, I made two.

Wouldn't you love to just kick off your flip flops and go running on this beach?  I love the palm fronds and the cat-tails.

This is what they look like from the top.

And something to write on the back.

Recipe for this card:

Paper -BoBunny Paradise and lots of scrap paper from my stash
3 Embossing folders
PowderPuff Chalk - Kaki, Mocha Mama, Blue Hawaiian, Amaretto, Plum Crazy and Sand

I am entering this card into the following Challenges:
