Paper Players 353 CAS Bikini Fun


Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!  I hope you're having a great weekend!  It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host the Paper Players challenge and she has a CLEAN AND SIMPLE one.....the reason I put those in capital letters is because the first time around, I FORGOT that part of the challenge!!


So this is actually my second card for this challenge!  It uses the CASology cue card of "Wish" as well as the CAS Colours & Sketches sketch:

        

So this is just a little tongue-in-cheek card.....I am sure some of you remember the little song from 1960 by Brian Hyland called Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini?  (You can hear it here if you've never heard it!!!)  I remember it being one of the very first songs I heard on the radio, and I was six years old at the time!  Anyway, while trying to figure out what I could create for this CAS challenge, I found this yellow polka-dotted paper and remembered this little bikini stamp (actually I think it's supposed to be underwear, but you'll have to work with me here, people) I got a while back from my friend Tammy!  Bingo!  


I stamped it in Daffodil Delight, added my little sentiment with Brushwork Alphabet, an embossed panel and some twine and it was done!


I actually did wear a bikini in my much younger days.....but nowadays, I can only wish to wear one, LOL!   I hope you'll stop by the Paper Players blog to see the others' fun CAS cards and be sure to share yours with us as well!  Now, do you have that song stuck in your head like I do?!  Enjoy!

The "kids" are on vacation visiting some family in GA and SC.  No trip down south is complete without a stop at South of the Border, right?

Be blessed!

  2. Such a cute, fun card! Love the yellow, stamp and sentiment too. I was 13 when the song came out and I wish I could have worn a bikini ever in my life. I always felt self conscious even though I weighed in the 90's/low 100's most of my life. NOW I don't even want to wear a bathing suit...lol. Is that Wayne's daughter in the pic? We've always wanted to stop there on our trips but never have. These days we avoid 95 both ways. Have a blessed week. How's the house coming?

  21. LeAnne, this made me laugh out loud and yes..... I WISH! This honestly was such a creative take on the challenge and I love that you used two different polka dot papers for the background and the bikini. Still laughing :-)
