Ready for the Beach!

Happy Memorial Day Holiday to everyone! I am so looking forward to spending a few days with family and friends at the beach. We have 2 birthdays to celebrate this weekend, and how appropriate is this birthday card for a summer beach birthday. I used the single stamp, Extreme Surfboard and added a background from Extreme Elememts. I love how well these stamp sets go together. To add some texture to the background I embossed my piece of Old Olive Cardstock with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder from the Summer Mini catalog.
The sentiment is from the Four Square Stamp Set which works really nice with the square punches. All done just in time to get ready for a nice weekend. Have a great weekend everyone and hope you all get to relax with family and friends.

For this card I used the following:
Stamp Sets: Four Square #111632, Extreme Surfboard #115173, Extreme Elements #115181
Cardstock: Ballet Blue #100613, Old Olive #100702, Whisper White #100730, Basic Gray #108692
Ink: Ballet Blue #100907, Basic Gray #109120
Embellishments: Big Shot Die Cut Machine #113439, Square Lattice Embossing Folder #119976 (Summer Mini Catalog)
Punches: Scallop Square #112081, 1 1/4" Square #104400

Very cool - love how the extreme elements are made to look like big splashes of water! I haven't purchased this set yet...but I'm so tempted! :) tfs
