You're Invited

Here is my entry for Sonia's challenge over @ Cricut 360 degrees to create a Invitation Card!
The challenge said to use any cricut cartridge, so I was really feeling the summer I decided to create a beach scene! I used "LIFE'S A BEACH"  cartridge...finally got a chance to use it, I have had it for over 5 months and now that summer is here it feels like I am out there on the beach. I hope you get the inspiration from this card to also create something summery-fun!
Recipe: Recollection white card 6 1/2x 5
            Yellow cardstock embossed circles background
             brown paper hand torn and shaded with Tim Holtz tea-dye
             (i also shaded the chair in the same color)
all cuts done on "Life's A Beach" @ 2 1/2".....added some bright ribbon from my stash
for some bling-I used MS glitter glue-pen, the paper used for beach ball is from "DCWV Nana's Kids"
Thanks for stopping by to see my creation for today...leave me a comment so I'll know who stopped by!
