Feels like summer...

It's hot and sticky in our house right now, which means summer is close by. =)
Unfortunately we don't have air conditioning so the summers can get brutal in our house. Especially last year when it was like 100 degrees for a record number of days. This year though we are determined to get to the beach as much as possible and have the girl's swim in the pool also!! We're excited for Memorial Day coming up, which is officially our beginning to the beach season. We plan on spending the whole weekend at the beach, BBQ-ing, and just hanging out with family and friends.
My card for today is another 2 for 1. I used the sketch from CPS 116 and the color challenge from Kristina's Color Inspiration #52. I don't have any SU! colors so I usually have to just work with what I have. The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Ever After line. I just love the colors in their paper. The rest of the paper is a mix of Martha Stewart and Bazzill. The butterfly punches were made with my Martha Stewart punch, love that thing!! The ribbon is PTI and the baubles are from Stamping Bella. The sentiment is from Damask Design stamp set. Have a great day everyone!
