Cooking with Cricut All about Water Fun Challenge

Welcome back to another great summer theme challenge at Cooking with Cricut.  We want to see your projects that pertain to Summer Water Fun.  These are just one of those cards I decide I really wanted to try something outside of my comfort zone.  The card shape is cut from my Art Philosphy Cart and then my umbrella and chair are from Life's a Beach. Cut at 3 inches and I used prepatterned paper for both. 

I then wiped out my CTMH many stamp ink pad and used Goldrush, Pacifica and Sky to ink up the background and yes that is real sand I used in the card.  Some good ole fashion Elmer glue held it great.

I will be entering this one in:
