Summer sunshine

Hi everyone!

Brrr it's cold at the lake today, but the card I'm sharing is warm and summer- like anyway. I think it will fit well for the following challenges:

I used my favorite SU colors: coastal cabana, summer sun, pretty in pink and strawberry slush. I find I reach for them all the time....but then most of you already know Coastal Cabana is my all time Stampin Up favorite color. SO sad to see it retired, but... no worries...I did buy some extra for my stash!

Quickly becoming another favorite of mine are the flamingo stamps and dies from My Favorite Things. I have more fun cutting them out and putting them together! They are so cute and always make me smile. The other dies I used for this card were from Lil Inker...the stitched rounded tags and from Papertrey...the sun rays.

I added a few pink sequins,too!

Have a fun weekend! Hopefully yours is warmer than ours here in northern Minnesota!
