Before I get to the card deets, I want to share my pool photos with you. I have been promising them for a while now, so thought I should follow through. If you just want info on my card, skip to the bottom on this post.
We have four new lounge chairs coming next Tuesday in gray and turquoise to go near the turquoise umbrellas. And then, for the big empty spot between the table and the patio, we are ordering a couch, two chairs, hassock, and coffee table in gray resin wicker/aluminum with gray cushions and some turquoise pillows. So it should look really cool out there once everything gets here! Needless to say, we are spending a lot more time sitting outside now! Someone told us we wouldn't need to go to Hawaii anymore, now that we have the pool and palm trees. Well, hardeharharhar. I will still need my annual ocean fix, doncha know! (For as long as we can go anyway!)
On to my card. I used a really cool image by The East Wind, Yogi Kai, for Patty, a friend with a birthday coming up soon. Patty is a yoga practitioner, so I thought this would be a great image for her. I printed Kai on X-Press It BC, colored her with my Copics, and distressed the edges with my Zutter. I then added Frantage in Aged Ivory and Shabby White. My sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Word Play set; DP is from Basic Grey Picadilly; CS is from Stampin' Up. And my die cuts were made with the following dies: Memory Box Classic Staircase and MB Graceful Chandelier.
