Life's a Beach!!!!!

Hello everyone: I have a fun card to share with you today and, if you live up North of the USA, you probably still "enjoying" Winter, even with mild than normal temperatures, this is NO beach weather so, with this in mind, I made this card.  I will link it to a few challenges at the end of this post.

Now, wouldn't you like to be on a beach right about now? 
This fun image is from an Art Impressions set called Beach Babes, I just adore this super sweet and fabulous ladies.
The image is stamped onto a die cut piece of Strathmore mixed media paper with Stazon balck ink and colored with SU markers and an aqua painter.
I cut a couple of pieces of Stampin' Up! pattern paper from my stash for the sides, the softer blue paper is from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley, the 3 shells are from a retired Flourishes set called "Seaside Life" and were stamped with Stazon black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils.
The little sun is from the set and was fussy cut.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Best Day Ever, the shells from Flourishes.

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.
Art Impressions Challenge #202, "Playful People" Week 2
A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge #38 "Anything Goes"
Whimsie Doodles "Anything Goes" with an optional twist of "work or career related" I don't know about you but I would LOVE this to be my job, 😏
Happy Little Stampers "Anything Goes with dies"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

LOve this Maria!!! I had to drop by to say hello, and have been treated to the most sassy beach babe! Wonderfully colored, and the perfect sentiment, to boot!
It's very mild, even in Michigan ... we could walk on the beach, but Lake Michigan is much to cold to venture even a toe in! Hope you are enjoying
