Beachy Keen - a Clean & Simple Card

This week for the "Free for all Friday" challenge at Stamp TV the theme was Lazy Days of Summer...........a clean & simple card with a summer theme.   No markers, pencils anything to color the image is allowed.  So here is what I came up with.

 A couple of years ago I bought a set of four crazy Flamingo stamps with saying, although I love them I had not used them yet.   When I had to do a summer themed card this "bathing beauty" was perfect.  I stamped in with Raspberry ink and torn the edges then mounted in onto raspberry paper.  The white background is Cored'inations pearl texture cardstock.
Here is a closer look at her so you can see all the details of her sandals  and bikini, yes she has a bikini on.  The saying off to the side saus "beachy keen", not sure if you could read that in the picture.

Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to read them, besides that way I knew you were here to take a peak.

And don't forget to check out my Blogaversary/Birthday giveaway.  First post on my blog.

Hi Donna...I seen this card on the Cricut Messageboard and just had to come to take a closer look! It is SO dang cute! I LOVE your blog, I don't know why I thought you only did Cricut cards, which don't get me wrong...I LOVE but don't use mine much anymore. Your cards are so inspiring...I'll be a regular.
