Beach Bum!

Hi there! Summer is coming full spend ahead down here ... it is only 1 1/2 months away now ... and I am there are already little boys who look similar to the image I used here on my card just ready to go swimming either on the beach or pool.

I used the tiny bubbles cuttlebug embossing folder to create the texture on the top portion of my card .... the bottom I left plain and attach my sentiment which is stamped onto a label created by the label nestabilities die. I added paper piercing to all 4 corners of my image using my paper piercing mat & tool. The designer paper reminds me of bubbles & water.

Stamps: Beach Bum Set - Paper Pretties
Paper: White; Baja Breeze & Brilliant Blue - SU; DP - Unknown
Other: Black Ink; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Label Nestabilities; Blue Brads; Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Foam Tape; Copics
