Anni-VERVE-sary Sketch #12

This is my final card for Verve Stamps Anni-VERVE-sary 12 days of sketches. I have had lots of fun over the past 12 days playing along with these challenges ... thanks Julee for all the fun sketches.

For my card today I actually turned the sketch upside down because I wanted to use a sun where the circle was on the sketch and you can't have suns on the bottom of the card LOL ... it wouldn't have looked so good on the sand as it does in the sky LOL . (Eeeeeeeek now I am thinking of that story about Henny Penny and the sky is falling LOL ..... well at least it wasn't a song so I can't start singing aren't you all relieved LOL!)

Anyway back to my card .... for this one I used stamps from Bugawamps .... I stamped the feet with umbrella and then stamped both bugs on scrap paper and cut them out so I could place them in front of the feet so it looks like they are leaning up against them. I did stamp the bugs onto the main card so I didn't have to cut out those curly antenna.

I stamped the umbrella onto orange polka dot designer paper and cut that out and layered over my umbrella. The sun was created by punching out two large stars and layering them on top of each other but offset. I seem to use the sentiment I used on the sun a lot ... it seems to fit so many situations.

I used the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder to the top portion of my folded orange card. I left the lower portion as is so I could stamp my other sentiment there. "Life's just beachy!" seems to suit these little guys so well ...don't ya think!
