This was such a fun card to make and super easy (I thought) to put together, especially after designing it on my Gypsy!  The sea turtle, shell, starfish, palm tree, sandcastle and waves were all cut from Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cartridge.  The sun is from Gypsy Wanderings, while the scallopped background is cut from I believe Just Because Cards.  All of these images I have never used before on a card or any ther project, and I am challenging myself to use more cuts than I have, other than my "go to" cuts.  There is a lot of layering going on as well as a little inking, and a little texture added with my Cuttlebug!  I am trying to use up more scraps because my scrap bin is still overflowing, and this entire card was made from scraps!  I love using up scraps!  :o)

Thank you for looking, as always, it means a lot!
