A Card for a Challenge

Hello everyone!! Just popping in with a card that I created for the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog. I only have a REALLY short time to get it in so here I am!

I bought some fun things from Pretty Pink Posh this month and I NEEDED to use the Vacation Scene Die for my card. 

I colored this in with Copic Markers to make it pop off my card base. I flipped the sketch too. Instead of horizontal, I made it a portrait card. Below is the Inspire.Create.Challenge #95 sketch that inspired me.

I put aside the Vacation Die Cut while I prepared the background.

I added a piece of white cardstock that I had dry embossed and layered it over a white, A2, Top folding, card base. (have no idea who made the folder, sorry!) I added my last piece of Basic Grey at the top.

I layered the colored die cut over my card front and used foam adhesive to pop up my Waffle Flower "Sisterhood" sentiment. 

I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops on top of the green part of the umbrella and I was finished. I am actually going to make this a Retirement Card by stamping Happy Retirement inside. This looks like a Retirement Card, right? This is how I want to retire...even though I don't LOVE the beach!!!

Well, that is all form me today. Again, just wanted to pop in with my card for this challenge.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

Your wonderful beach scene does look like the perfect place to retire! I don't LOVE the beach either, but it's still what I picture when I retire - lol!

Fantastic design! I really, really like the element placement and generous amount of open space on this cheerful sunny season greeting.
