You're Sun-Sational

Hi!

Who could use a bit of summery bliss right now?  I could...I am not complaining too much because I believe by all accounts it's been mild this winter. I may just have jinxed us and Mother Nature may come bearing down.

Well, I have a fun little beachy card for you today! I made this for a friend who has worked hard on taking care of herself and has got back in shape and has a whole new body physique. She looks "Sun-Sational" and I wanted to let her know.
The colors I chose were inspired by the patterned paper I found in my stash.  The card base I am not sure of because it was also in my stash, but my guess is retired Stampin' UP! Green Galore. I used sand paper for the dune. All stamped images except the sun are from Wilson Designs: Teeny Bikini and the sun is from Wilson Designs Nauti-Cool. I just love what a fun little card this is.
I am joining in the fun at The Craft Place challenge - Oh I love to be beside the seaside and Lily Pad Cards - Patterned Paper challenge, Cupcake Craftroom - New Beginnings, and another swing this week with Di at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge. :-)

Some Happy News: I am staying on another term with Wilson Designs as a Senior Design Team Member! So exciting! 
Thanks for stopping in today!

Hi Tammy - oh, this has brightened up a dull day here, we're waiting for snow :(

Such a gorgeous card and perfect for your friend. I love the colours and now have a big smile on my face :)) I think this truly deserves a go on the swings and you can also hop to the front of the queue for the slide!
