Nautical Birthday

Hello blogging friends, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Today I have a card to share with you that I made using digital papers I printed from Nit-Wits (I know a funny name huh?) Coastal Collection that I purchased and downloaded.  There are some really neat things in this collection besides just paper.

I made this card following one of the sketches from a challenge on the Cricut message board.   I am thrilled with how it turned out.  I think card reminds me of Summer and vacationing on the coast.  We are planing a trip to Maine later this summer, so the challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays is "Summer" so I will enter this card there.
The life preserver was cut using the Life's a Beach cartridge and the sentiment is a Rubbernecker stamp.
I will also post this on the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge over at The Paper Players
Here are the choices.
So I used the top row  Twine-Blue-Birthday.
Come on over and at Paper Players you have July 4th.
Thanks for stopping by.

The background paper is from the Best of K&Company stack.  I love the bright colors and thought it went well with the lemon theme.
The lemon and saying is stamped using a Repeat Impressions stamp.
I colored the lemon using my Copic markers then covered it with Crystal Lacquer.

The papers are all from the Graphic45 By the Sea paper stack.  This is my first and only Graphic 45 paper. but I am sure it won't be my last.  I love the patterns on the papers.
