Time To Relax......

I made this card for my colleague and friend Vicky's hubby Alex. He's recently retired and I thought that the sun-lounger 'lounger' in a holiday isle setting was perfect. The card is an 8x8 square, and I topped it with this fab palm tree and beach (complete with sun shade and coconut!) cut from textured cardstock. I added 'sea' with shimmery paper (you can see the effect better in the next pic) and an image of a very rotund gent from last month's Making Cards For Men Special Edition. I adhered the rough cut image onto card to give it stability, then cut it out and adhered it to the scene with foam pads.

Here you can see how the sea shimmers- makes you wanna take a dip!- and that great image!
I added a blue shadow to the whole image then adhered it to the card with foam pads. The sentiment was cut from brown cardstock and adhered flat around the image.
Carts used:
Island scene- Formal Occasion (there are other scenes available on the cart)
Sentiment- Life's A Beach
Thanks for dropping by!
