Summer Birthday F4A22








Today’s SCS challenge was Cool Summers and Hot Winters!  LOL!  We were to make a summer card with cool colors or a winter card with warm colors.  My BIL’s birthday is next week, and he lives on the beautiful Isle of Palms in SC; my sister and I both love vintage stuff, so even though he may not appreciate the images on this CAS card, I know my sis will!  I chose some purple, blue and green scraps of BG paper along with an image of three handsome men in their sexy bathing attire from Graphic 45’s On the Boardwalk:


When I trimmed the scrap of green herringbone, I had a little square frame left from a previous punchout, so I used that to frame my birthday greeting, which is from a new SU set called Perfect Punches.  I already had a Crumb Cake card laying on my desk, so I used that for my base.  I did a computer-generated sentiment for the inside:


Oooh-la-la!  I have had SO much fun with this DP!! I hope he gets a kick out of it too!  Happy Birthday, Russ!
