Friday Beach Bums

Wishing I was getting some of that hot weather that the Central US is sweltering under!
The FBD rubber stamp that I won in May is a great go-to for a summer card.  'Beach Bums' is a wonderful and sassy image that just screams "Summer!""
I tried to play with some different, cooler, 'summer' colors with this card.
The papers and ribbon are all from my stash.  "Beach Bums" is stamped on Neenah solar crest using Memento tuxedo black ink.  She is colored with copic markers.
The sentiment is from Paulette at TLC.  Check her site out, it will quickly become your go to site for sentiments, papers and vintage images.  Most are free and lots in her store to chose from.
The die cuts are all Spellbinders dies and the bling is liquid pearls.  The card base is dry
embossed using a CuttleBug embossing folder.
