Beachy Birthday

Happy Thursday!  So, as I am working to increase my stash of greeting cards at home, I figured it's summer, I need birthday cards, so let's make 'em!  I was inspired by challenges this week from both Die Cuttin' Divas & Creative Cutter Room to make a beach-themed card, so here's what I came up with:
The layout was inspired by a card I found on pinterest (who doesn't love pinterest?). It's simple, summery, and best of all - we have a ton of August birthdays in our family so this one will come in handy!  If you're feeling beachy this week, come play along at this week's challenges!
