PPA 307


I truly love this fantastic color combination by the talented Brian King!  It's very nautical looking to me, and the ocean is my favorite place.  I could live there!  Speaking of which,  I have a friend who lives at the beach so I decided to make her a cocktail card using the Mixed Drinks stamp set.  Aren't the umbrellas adorable?!  I also used the new embossing folder called Seaside.  My sentiment piece was made with Thoughtful Banners. Thanks for visiting!  Please stop over at Pals Paper Arts to see all of the pretty cards and play along if you can!

Such an adorable card, Michelle! These colors are very summery and nautical, so I love that you "went there" with them. So cute!

Such a perfect card for your friend at the beach. It would also be fun for anyone who comes over and sits on the porch with you having that glass of wine.
Love your use of the framelets to set that graphic off, too too cute.

I like the way you celebrate Michelle! It reminds me of the grasshopper cocktails my mom used to make.

A "cool" celebration for sure. Fantastic choice of stamps for the challenge. One question.... what's in the glass? I'm ready for a cool sip.

Thanks all!

Rae, it's a Blue Hawaiian, one of my favorite rum drinks around the pool.
