Sending Warm Wishes from Sunny Florida



Here's my Design Team card for this week's Pile it On Challenge. The theme this week is Warm Wishes, which you can interpret any way you please. A couple of weeks ago when I first found out what this week's challenge was I was thinking hot chocolate! It had been in the mid-30's here in Miami. One morning I had to scrape ICE off my windshield before I could drive my SUV. As an aside, I found out that credit cards make great ice scrapers in a pinch - LOL!! But now it's warmed up to normal seasonal temperatures - high 70's to low 80's during the day. So I discarded my idea of doing something with hot chocolate for this challenge and decided to send ya'all some of our warm beachy weather.

The stamp sets used are from Flourishes - Beach Life and Seaside Life - both timeless sets that I get a lot of use out of. The designer paper is from the K&Co. Sea Glass collection with Baja Breeze card stock from SU. Coloring is with Copics, jumbo eyelets and twine from SU.

Here are the challenges I have Piled On for this card:
Be sure to hop on over to Pile it On and get yourself warm with our warmest wishes for a wonderful Sunday! And while you are there, check out the blogs of our talented design team. Some of us are new to the design team so this is a great time to get to know us!


UPDATE: This card was featured on Card of the Week.
