Life's a Beach

I would love to be on a beach somewhere, sipping on an exotic cocktail and enjoying the sun.  Well, either a beach or Las Vegas.  Its now over a year since I was there and I cant wait to go back, and hopefully soon.

As it is we've been enjoying some thunder storms today.  Some people mgiht hate them but I love a good thunder storm.  Always reminds me of Orlando and the family holidays, as well as the summer I spent working there.

This is the card I've been working on this afternoon.

Its a piece of blue/green paper from the Hopscotch collection from K&Company mounted on a sheet of dark green paper and affixed to a square white card blank.  The same colour of green is used to mount the image (from CUP designer Lee Jacobs and coloured with buttercup, sky blue, dusky pink, leaf green and ruby promarkers), the sentiment (Inkadinkado) and the centre strip.  The ribbon (a light blue which doesnt show up well on camera) and the tiny pearls (blue and white) are from my stash.

I am entering this in;

I also issued a personal challenge to myself to use a piece of patterned paper from my stash...I sorta managed it!
