A little sunshine

It's been hot lately, hasn't it?  It makes me want to relax on the beach, in a nice cool breeze- the inspiration for this card.

It's just a regular A2 card.  The cloud was cut from Create a Critter and I stamped it with a sentiment from AmyR stamps.  I think it was from the All Women set.  I just got these on Friday, and and having a great time getting used to stamping with cling rubber stamps.  The setting sun is from Doodlecharms, and has a little Diamond Stickles to give it some sparkle.  The waves were hand cut so that they would be kind of asymmetrical, and the sand was ripped.

The woman on the lounge chair was cut from Pack Your Bags.  She's relaxing on the beach with her lemonade.  ;)  I used some polkadot paper for her bathing suit (but here's a secret- I added the orange dot on her shoulder and enhanced the pink one on her side with marker.)

See the seashells?  They add a bit of dimension because they're puffy stickers from, of all places, the Dollar Tree.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simply Create Too- Summer Vacation
