Fun in the Sun

Hey there! I'm home from CHA and WOWWWW what an incredible experience that was to finally meet so many online stampin' friends. I promise to get the pics uploaded soon!



Today I want to show this card I made with different Spellbinders dies and my MFT Beach Bum set. I just love this Thrift Shop paper....can't get enough of it. The red umbrella and the red blossom are up on foam tape. The Surf's Up Shapabilities umbrella was cut and embossed in Real Red, then I cut and embossed it again on a couple different patterns of the Thrift Shop DP, cut those out by hand, and glued them onto the red umbrella. I had a lot of fun making this card!

Here's a close-up...



Enjoy what's left of the weekend...and for all those finally getting home from CHA, hope you get lots of rest!
