Sending Warm Fuzzies...

Cricut, Doodlecharms

Here is a fun card I created for BBTB2 (water theme) and Die Cuttin' Divas (just because) challenges this week. I pulled out the oldie but goodie Doodlecharms for this card. I have never used the palm tree or sun from this cart and thought this would be the perfect opportunity! I had an awesome sentiment that fits nicely with this beach scene too, so that was a bonus! I used yellow glitter paper for the sun, which I'm pretty sure came from Colorbok (Wal-mart), and the white sandy beach I created with some fun glitter paper from DCWV Linen Closet mat stack. I had some of the sky and water paper in my scrap stash, so it's always nice to use those up. The sun is popped up on some foam tape as well as the front palm tree, just for some added dimension. I did run the leaves through the Cuttlebug using Swiss Dots, and I think everything just turned out great!  Thanks for checking out my card!
