RRCB91 Summer Birthday Sketch

Hi peeps!  It's Tuesday and that means another RetroRubber challenge!  Woohoo!  We have a sweet little sketch this time around:

No automatic alt text available.

I pulled out a set from the 2017 Occasions catalog called Day at the Beach for my sunshiney birthday card today:

I stamped each element with Stazon ink on Shimmery White cardstock and watercolored them in, fussy-cut them, then mounted them on some papers from American Crafts (Little by Little by Shimelle).  I used Pineapple Punch, Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron and Balmy Blue for my colors:

I added a little stitched scallop at the bottom and stamped a birthday sentiment (Altenew's Label Love), then added some Mint Macaron thick baker's twine.  My final embellishments were some stitched stickers from SRM!  Cute and easy!  I have a dear friend who loves the beach and her birthday is next this will be winging its way to her!

I hope you'll play with our challenge this week...remember that your stamps have to be at least a year old and you must tell us how old they are!!  Can't wait to see what you create!

Now......I am taking a little blogging break....see you in a few days!!

Oh LeAnne, this is a fabulous card, full of Summer fun and colors. Love the cute die cuts and your fabulous combination of DSPs.
And looking at Cassidy enjoy a dip in the pool, makes me want to go to our club house and jump in the cool and fabulous pool there.
Awesome card Teammate.
