Good morning!  This week's Twisted Tuesday challenge is to create a vacation themed card and the twist is that it needs to be a CAS (or clean & simple) card.  When I think about going on vacation I always think of the beach and boy, how I would love to be sitting on a beach in this beach chair right now....LOL

I stamped my image and then colored it using my SU markers- tempting turquoise, tangerine tango, sarah sand, and daffodil delight.  I decided to do some paper piecing with the umbrella part of the image using the same designer series paper that I used on the background of my card.

The tempting turquoise layer behind my image panel was crimped using my paper crimper and I have it placed on my card using dimensionals.  I used two of my new punches on my card- my decorative label punch which I used for my sentiment and my dotted scallop ribbon punch which I used on the bottom of my tangerine tango card stock.  For my embellishement I decided to use some twine with a button.

There won't be a new Twisted Tuesday challenge next week. Twisted Tuesdays will be on Vacation. Entrants will be able to be upload to the Vacation challenge until next Sunday, June 3rd.

Such a fun vacation card. Make you want to be in that chair - but I guess that is the idea now isn't it?!

The colors are perfect for Summer. You paper pieced the umbrella so well.

Great card!
