life is good

I had a chance to play with Beach Bum again today and thought it would be fun to make a retirement card, or birthday card, or congratulations card - well, this one can be for many occasions I suppose, lol! I used SC232 for the layout. I stamped the palm tree on a piece of Cosmo Cricket paper from the Beach Bum Key Ingredients and then pieced the green leaves up top. Love all the fabulous colors in this kit and they work so great with all these little vacationing cuppies! I used my Copics to color in the beach ball and sun block bottle and then added some bling for the cuppie and my ribbon. So what do you think? Retirement? Birthday? Congrats? Oooh the possibilities! All I know is I would love to be resting under a palm tree somewhere glorious!

Have a fantastic day!
