Happy Summer!!

Hello there! Today, I'm sharing a card I made to celebrate a summer birthday.
I love the beach!!! So for this card I wanted to create my own 'beach' with a delicious cocktail :)

I used distress inks and sponge daubers for my "mini beach" background. The yummy cocktail was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.

It's my first time using burlap paper and I thought was a good idea to use this material to match  my beach theme card, so I used it to create the frame for the focal image.

Here's the card...




This card was inspired by the following challenges:

* Spectrum Noir Monthly Challenge: The challenge theme for June 2016 is: Use a die-cut

* YNS Color Challenge #42
