Beach Party - Sweet Summertime

Hi!

Yay, I snuck into my craft room last night and was able to put this card together. I think the blog will be much quieter than usual this summer. I also apologize for not being able to visit often, but I have limited free time right now.

So without blabbing on and on here is the card I have to share today!
I started with a kraft card base (The Kraft Outlet) and started adding the various layers of embellishments  and images. The stamps used are from Wilson Designs Strawberry Lemonade and Our Craft Lounge - Life's A Beach.
It was one of those cards where I used papers laying on my desk and allowed that to drive the outcome. I am a slow crafter and one of the reasons is it takes me forever to pick out papers or decide on placement. Since, I had to make the most use of my time quickly, I literally just flew by the seat of my pants. (ha) I love this vintage beach beauty and knew it would be perfect to use! 

Inspiration for this card comes from The Kraft Journal - Good Ol' Summertime.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a terrific Tuesday!
