Hot Hot challenges!

Well, I am traveling for work this week and my travels have taken me to the wonderful and HOT Panama. I do have to say my job takes me to some amazing places. I get to see the Canal today- I can see so  many ships lined up waiting for their turn to go through the canal from my hotel room.


So before I left for the airport yesterday morning, I did this quick little card for a couple "hot" challenges. 
It's a Terrific Tuesday Hit the Beach challenge going on now over at Scrappy Moms Stamps and a Hot Hot Hot challenge over at Papercraft Star.


Have a great day and stay cool wherever you are.


Here's How I did it...
Base card is 5" square on kraft card stock
Paper form Echo paper Paradise Beach and Authentic Fresh paper pads
Mats are cut at 4 7/8" and 4.5" square
Sand castle/layers cut at 3.5" from Fun in the Sun cart
The scallop sun were leftover die cuts in my stash- had to pull from that sine I had so little time to do this card
The scallop is inked with weathered wood Tim Holtz ink
Twine from Twinery
Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps Spring Fling stamp set

Lucky you...my husband has always wanted to go to Panama just to see the canal. One day when the kids are off on their own, we will go!
