Well, don't this look like fun! Relaxing on the beach soaking up some warm rays. It has been a couple of years since I have been to the beach. It's only about a 5 hour drive, but seems forever to get there. Oh, but there is nothing like fresh seafood.

My bathing beauty is Florence by Kraftin Kimmie. She's a little old fashioned in the bathing suit category, but a cutie just the same. She is colored with Copic Sketch markers (BG23, BG32, C5, C7, E01, E11, E35, E37, E40, E42, E57, E93, and R37) and Copic Spica pens (turquiose and clear). The background is sponged with Stampin Up So Saffron and Bashful Blue ink.

The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is Basic Grey's Hello Luscious. The die cuts are Spellbinder Nestabilities Lacy Square and Square. The punches used were Stampin Up for the sentiment, McGill Petite Flowers for the flowers, and Martha Stewart Doily Lace Deep Edge punch. The bling is from my stash.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:

Paper Play - Week 19 - Celebrating Summer

Shelley's Images - Bling is a Girls Best Friend

Stamp Something Challenge - Anything Goes

Kraftin Kimmie - Challenge #78 - Girls Rock!!!

Crafty Emma - Challenge #36 - Holidays

I hope you see something that you like and that will inspire you. Thanks for stopping in.
