Pals Paper Art 47

Pals Paper Art is having a Summer Theme Challenge this week.
I wasn't really sure how I was going to go about this one because when I think of summer I think of having cocktails by the pool, the ocean, dolphins, but I don't have any stamps to reflect this. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks, I have a Life is a Beach cartridge for my cricut, and what better to use to make a summer theme card. Since today is the perfect day for sitting by the pool with cocktails this is what I decided to make. This card has the best of both worlds, Stampin' Up! and Cricut. With the exception of the cartridge used to cut the card and words all products are Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Ink: Soft Suede, Only Orange, Stampin' Write Soft Suede Marker
Paper: Only Orange, Brilliant Blue, Pixie Pink, Green Calore, Whisper White
Accessories: SNAIL, Paper Snips, 2-Way Glue Pen, and Sponge Daubers
To give some depth I used my Sponge Dauber and inked the edges of the umberlla, letters and pineapple, and did the same with Only Orange around the edge of the card. I hope you enjoy my card today.
