Just Another Day in Paradise...

I wish I was in paradise, but I'm not... However, it is finally nice and sunny here in the Pacific Northwest and the last weather report I heard said that our warm, sunny weather is going to hang around for awhile... YIPEEE!!!   Not exactly paradise, but I will take it!   My card is for a couple of challenges:  JUGs and Wee Memories.  The Wee Memories challenge is to make a summertime card and when I saw the JUGs sketch, I thought two would be a good match.   Didn't take me long to decide to use the Hero Arts/BasicGrey cling set Lauderdale along with some Stampin Up designer paper I got a couple of years ago.   The sentiment is from Hero Arts as well.   Some sand colored Flower Soft was used to make the little beach.  The "coconut" is a corduroy button from Stampin Up!   I don't live in paradise... but I can create a bit of it on a card!




Thanks for taking a peek....  hope everyone in the US had a wonderful 4th of July!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; SU! Orange; SU! designer paper; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Ink:  SU! Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss & Close to Cocoa, Memento Tangelo; Buttons:  SU! cord buttons; Spellbinders dies
