Dazzling Day

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It's been a crazy few weeks and I finally had a chance to relax a bit and stamp for fun. That doesn't happen to often. LOL I made today's card for the Hero Arts July Contest's Summer Adventures theme. It uses the Clouds background and a couple of new stamps. I finally got the Designer Woodgrain after drooling over it for which seems like an eternity, and I used it as water for my beach scene. I inked the sentiment from Many Birthday Messages in two colours. Of course, I couldn't help but include a pair of sparkly flip flops which were released by Lil' Inker Designs last week. :)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous start to your week!
