Beach Bum
 This is a very simple card and all the diecut shells as well as the light house were made last summer.  Glad I saved them!  They were made from a variety of papers from one of those 1 lb. paper scrap packs.  I love them because you never know what you will get.  The background is from ColorBok.  Now, the sun is a paint chip!  Again, hope my Home Depot people aren't reading this...  They'd never let me back inside, would they?  I used a punch for the circle, and for the rays I used a Martha Stewart corner punch, these are the throwaway pieces, 3 for each punch.  They'd make great watermelon seeds also.  I really do like the bright color and the different texture that the paint chips have.

Don't know whether you can see it or not, but I embossed Beach Bum just below the sun with my Sizzix Texture Botique and a Cuttlebug folder.  Love them!

I am going to enter this card in summer challenges at Die Cutting Divas, The Crazy Challenge, Make It Monday, and Paper Playtime. 

Wouldn't the beach be nice right now?
Have a great day.
