Friday Fun in the Summer Sun

Good morning and happy Friday.  This week our challenge was to create a card for summer party or cook out.  PERFECT!  I am going to spend the day poolside today and I’m going to a party tonight.  :)
Here is my card using Beach Dude from InStyle Stamps.  I also used several of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges on this card. 
And a close up. 

I used some fun paper from Queen and Company that I just got this week from my LSS.  I cut out one of the beach balls and mounted it on a jumbo brad and covered it with a thick layer of Crystal Effects to make it shiny.  I made my flowers using some old plastic packaging that I cut using a flower die in my Cuttlebug.  I used my Cricut to cut the ovals I matted the Beach Dude on.  I found the little vacation ribbon slide in my stash.  It came with some summer ribbon, but the colors didn’t match, so I searched through my ribbon supply to find the polka dot ribbon from May Arts.   Over all I think he came out pretty cute.

    **Sorry for the late post.  I have been without internet access for the past few days :( 

    1. I love this. What a great card. It was a great idea to use the beach ball on the brad. I like the polka dot ribbon. Looks like little beach balls. TFS

    2. Great card! I love the paper and that studly beach in my book!
