Mark's Finest Papers

Check out Speedy Fox!  I think he forgot his sunscreen!

I saw this luscious colored Mark's Finest Papers card stock and had to go with it.  The color was warm and tropical, so I opted for sun and sea!  I punched my sun and stamped it with the dotted ric rac.  I sponged in some rays and stamped my sea.  I trimmed a piece of vellum and got my sentiment on it.  This card makes me think of my latest vacation to Florida to visit my sister.  I had several glorious days of sunshine.  If she wasn't flying home in less than two weeks, I would send this to her. 
Thanks for stopping in!  Be sure to head to Tangii's blog to see what fabulous creation she has for you today!
