Keep Calm and Float On

I was so excited when I saw this stamp/die set on some of the Instagram stories I followed from CHA that I ordered it the day it came out and I got it in the mail 3 days later. I ordered it directly from Avery Elle and I just love it and I had to play with it right away. Even though it's still winter, I made a couple of summer birthday cards since I knew exactly what I wanted to make. For the swimming pool, I used this specialty paper I found at Michael's called "Foil Paper" by Recollections.

There's a little story behind this card. I decided to use all 3 donuts as the floats since my 2 friends and I used to frequent Dunkin Donuts quite a bit "back in the day". So this card has all of us floating on our donut rafts :). I thought the "sunglasses" button was perfect for this too :).

Now I want to float on a donut raft eating a DONUT :). Only if it was WARMER, of course!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Add Die Cut
4 Crafty Chicks - Lots of Layers
Aud Sentiments - For a friend
Cardz 4 Galz - Stamping, No Digis
Star In My Pocket - Make it Girly

I decided to stamp, color and die cut a bunch
at one time so I have them ready to go for my
next several cards. This took me a few hours. LOL
