Summertime Pop-Up

WooHoo!  I was so excited yesterday when the FedEx guy showed up at my house last night with my Sizzix order.  I managed to order three of the pop-up dies that I've been drooling over for months now and couldn't wait to open one up and get crafting.

For this card I used not only Sizzix dies, but also a couple of Cricut cartridges - including:

Mickey & Friends for the Sun
Life's a Beach for the Seagull, lizard and flip flops

The beach towel was cut from fabric using one of my Sizzix "dress up bath clothes" die.  I used sand paper for my beach "sand" - although it's not white like our beaches here in Florida.  (That's right, not all of them have oil.)  And my sentiment is from Quote Garden .

I will say too that the pics are not the best in the world.  Well not the one of the outside of the card at least.  I tried snapping it several times and it kept washing out the colors for some reason.  So then I decided to scan it and the colors are still off, but at least you can see what it looks like......

Wow, imagine my surprise to find your wonderful creation here at BBTB2. I thought I was lost for a minute, usually looking at your stuff over at CCC. Love this cute little pop-up. I haven't seen any of these Sizzix dies. It's really cute. Love how you tucked the little lizard into the bottom corner. Great idea using sandpaper for the sand. Thanks for playing along with us at BBTB2.
