Hello my sweet crafty friends, 

I am so ready for Summer as you can tell by my card, and so sick of all the snow we got lately and with the cold weather I don't think its leaving anytime soon.  
My card today is for a challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. The challenge is to make a card using any charm in any of the cartridges.  I decided to use Life's A Beach cartridge.  Come join the fun at BBTB2,

My card measures 5"x5" White card base.
Blue Mat is 4.25"x4.25"
I cut a piece of craft paper 5" wide and 2.75" high and ripped the top to look like sand.  I inked the edges w/ Tea Dye Distress Ink
The Palm Trees on page 40 were cut at 4.75". I cut two different shades of green, and brushed some Wink of Stella on them to give some texture.  
The stamp is from one of the Peachy Keen Stamp of the Month sets. The charms are on page 62 and 63. I cut them twice, once in craft paper and once in red and pink for the swimming trunks and bikini.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
