Life is Good!

Good morning! I used Taylor's sketch, TECC72, for my Life is Good! card today. I still had the Die Cuts with a View Citrus mat stack out on my desk, so I decided to use it again. I modified my layout ever so slightly and put the narrow vertical panel on top of the blue vertical panel. I had punched out the beach border on the Kraft cardstock and realized that it would all be covered up if I followed the sketch exactly.

I stamped and colored "Beach bum" cuppie, who is relaxing in a lounge chair. I stamped, colored and cut out the palm tree, then popped it up to provide some shade behind her. The 3 beach balls are also stamped, cut out and popped up with foam tape.

I hope you're week is going well... Thanks for stopping by!
