Friend is retiring in Florida

Hello my crafty friends,
I just recently had a neighbor of mine moving down south to retire.  This beach chair image from Delicious Doodles was just perfect for this card.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the chair and lotion bottle.  The sentiment and flags, and crab were printed and cut with the Silhouette Studio. I put them on pop dots for depth.  The umbrella and embellishments were also from Silhouette Store. Silhouette file# 43867 and file #9208 I used Cricut Embossing folder Swirls and sponged over with Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink.  The background for the sand was free clipart I found online. Hop on over to Pinspirational Challenges to see what the DT has for your summer inspiration and enter the challenge for a chance to win some digital images from our wonderful sponsor. Thanks for stopping by today and leaving your comments. I love hearing from you.
