Beach, anyone?

Greetings from Paradise!

As the temperatures here in Phoenix have been over 100 off and on for the past few weeks, we aren't getting out of our homes anymore these days than those of you who were stuck in 2 feet of snow last January! 
I trip to a beach, anywhere, sounds good to me right now!
I used the sketch this week and stamps from
and made this card to send to someone JUST IN CASE I ever make to a beach! 
Yes, this is a "gloating" card!  As if I'll ever get the opportunity to send it!

I used the bra (bikini top) from the "Bras Volume 1" set,
 and my little beach bag is from "Birthday Purses",
which I understand is back in stock! 

I love embossing and paper piecing these little images.
I know Gucci isn't hunting me down for design ideas, but it's fun to pretend!

Notice the little matching beach throw hanging out of the bag, along with the white towel?  Hey, a girl has to be fashionable and well-protected from the sun!

I doubled-up on the tags so that the second could be personalized in some way,
(perhaps the name of this MYSTERY beach I well be visiting soon!)

Thanks for looking and, PLEASE, send some cooler weather!
I know many of you are asking for sunshine! Oh, but if only we could trade a bit of
sunny, hot weather for a bit of rain!

Supplies used:
Paper:  DCWV, "Citrus" matstack
Stamps:  Skipping Stones Designs
Tags:  K & Company
Ribbon:  JoAnn's
Embossing Powder:  Stampendous
Twine:  The Twinery

Take care, and have a Happy Father's Day!

Such a creative use of the bra stamp as a bikini top and purse as a beach tote- this is really amazing!
