Happy 4th Of July From The Beach

Good Morning!  Hope you all enjoy today!

My card will be entered into the Challenge at Papertrey Ink, Adding Color To Cover Plates.

Using various shades of greens and blues I covered my Chevron Cover Plate.  I then swiped a white ink pad over the entire thing to soften the look.  The photos really don't do it justice, looks so much nicer in real life.

The sentiment is embossed using white glitter powder and die cut using Spellbinders Label 2 die.  The chairs were die cut and stamped in Bermuda Bay ink.  Stamps and Dies are the Love Notes sets.  Plain white ribbon adorned with teal Enamel Brads and topped off with a teal sheer bow.  Inside uses a border die for accent.
We actually may act out this card this afternoon sipping a cool adult beverage!
Happy 4th of July to safe!
