TGIF Theme Challenge Meets Proverbial Stampers Sketch Challenge: Summer Birthday Fun!

Good morning!  Oh my what a change in the weather, a break in the heat in the humidity this week makes one happy lady and nothing to feel blue about here.  Today I decided to play along with the TGIF challenges theme challenge which is "Summertime Blues" and I decided to mix things up with shades of blue and one of my new favorite framelits (who doesn't just relax when you see a beach chair and cool drink?) and decided to combine it with the Proverbial Stampers sketch challenge for double the fun!!

I started with Thick Whisper White cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Soft Sky cardstock.  Next I took a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and embossed it with the Big Shot and Polka Dot Basics Embossing folder.  I added a strip of Silver Foil cardstock to help anchor all my elements.

Next I took a piece of designer series paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack and matted it with Melon Mambo cardstock.  For the main element I used the Big Shot and Seasonal Layers Framelits to cut out this fun beach chair out of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the yummy drink using the Colorful Season stamp set (don't forget you can buy the stamp set and coordinating framelits as a bundle and save 10% and you will want both these items for projects all year long) and then cut it out with the coordinating framelit and attached it with a dimensional.

The greeting is from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set and was stamped in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the Classic Label Punch (it's become my go to punch for greetings and I love how I can tailor the size based on how long my greeting is.

I have always thought that people who have summer birthdays are so lucky, nice weather and vacations what a great way to ring in a birthday and this card definitely helps someone celebrate their birthday with all the classic feelings of summer.
