A summer party

Happy Wednesday to you!  I am so happy to be back with a trusted router so I can access the Internet.  Whew!  It was touch-n- go and I finally caved and threw the old one out that we got at Christmas because it did not always want to work.  I think it got zapped during one of the storms we had.  Not saying I have not felt the same way.  Especially with age creeping up on me but... I want Internet access!  Now I can catch up!  :-)  Onto the party.  We have lots of Summer birthdays in my family.  Just celebrated my Dad's birthday at the top of the week.  Happy Birthday to you Dad!  He never reads this so not sure why I am putting this in.  Anyhow...

My Crafty Creations card for today is another mixture of bright colors and whimsical patterns to depict my Summer mood.  Yeah I am finally getting into the spirit!  Our theme is "dress up" and you can interpret that anyway you like.  I used Echo Park's Summer Days papers along with a Pattie's Creations digi, "Beach Pattieboop".  I so wish I was brave enough to wear a bikini to the beach.  This little cutie is colored in with Copics and popped up with foam dots for dimension.  I used some American Crafts ribbon, orange baker's twine,  and a vintage button.  The sentiment is a rub-on from Wordsworth.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

"Beach Pattieboop"is a cutie.
It has been ages since I wore a bikini at the beach. And now? I feel more comfrotable in a bathing suit :)
Your card is gorgeous; I love your stitching. It adds that just that little extra that that makes this card even more special!
