Shop Pumpkin Spice Inspiration - Relaxin at the Beach

Hello Everyone!
Thank You for joining me over at the Pumpkin Spice Blog!
I'm here today to share a card I've made for this week's Shop Pumpkin Spice Challenge #30 - BEACH using TONS of products from the Shop Pumpkin Spice Store.
I used the Beach Scene Stamp SVG File from Miss Kate Cuttables and turned it into a card by taking the stamp shape and welding two together. I cut out the card's base from Carta Bella's Felt Ultra White Cardstock. The backround Cloud Paper is from the My Mind's Eye Fly A Kite Collection.
The Palm Trees - and rest of the shapes - were cut using up papers from the My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side ONE and My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side TWO. I substituted the coconut shapes on the Palm Trees from some Brown Pearls. I didn't actually have any Brown Pearls in my stash, so I used my Walnut Promarker to color my pearls. I colored them several times until I reached the shade of Brown I wanted.
The Hammock was cut from a scrap piece of paper from the American Crafts XOXO 6x6 Paper Pad. I added two tiny bows made from Maraschino Baker's Twine - available HERE at Shop Pumpkin Spice - to hang the hammock from the Palm Trees.
I used my Baby Blue Stickles to add some glitter to the edges of the waves and sprinkled the Sand cut with some decorative sand. I also added some Yellow Stickles to the edges of the Sun.
I hope you have enjoyed my ShopPumpkinSpice Inspiration! ALL products used in my card can be found at the ShopPumpkinSpice Store.
