One last beach party!

Seems like everywhere that I look, school has already started.  Well, not here!
Our kids start school on the day after Labor Day. more week to enjoy the wonderful
weather that we are finally having here on the Oregon Coast!  Seems like one more beach
party is called for.

The girl and palm tree are both images from Fresh Brewed Designs.  They absolutely
scream 'Summer'.  Both stamps are in rubber, just like the stamps in the new release
on Sept. 8. 
The flower is a laser cut from a little scrapbook store on Maui called 'Island Paperie'.
The cuts are specific to that store and are beautiful.  They have a large selection to choose from.
The background is a Spellbinder die cut, inked with Momento inks.  The other coloring is
all with copic markers.  There are stickles on the drink, the sun and in the palm tree.
The DP is from a DCWV photo stack.  The bling is from Recollections.

This card may be entered in the following challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar:  Party Time (It's a Luau)
Stamps R Us:  Anything Goes
Creative Belli:  Use velum
