A Beachorado Card at it's finest...Just Sayin'

Well, I finally did it~I made a beachorado card. I try to have some beachorado elements in all my cards, but today folks, I have really outdone myself. Today I made a 100% certified BEACHORADO card. Here it is:

It is a take on a sketch challenge by The Crafts Meow.  Here is their sketch:

At first I made another card, which I will post tomorrow, but after completing it, I just didn't feel like it was me. So, it was back to the drawing board where created this little beauty. I knew it was a winner,  in my heart anyway, when I put down those pretty patterned papers.  The best part is that all the papers were SCRAPS! How about that! ?!? I took some liberties with the scetch, I hope that I am allowed to.

You know when you are making something good and you get a little EXTRA happy? That's what making cards and crafting does to me! Makes me a little extra happy.

Some women take xanax, I just make cards :)

I am also entering this card in the Lily Pad Patterned Paper Challenge.  :)

footnote: this card is Beachorado because: it has a combination of a variety of colors, both muted and with some pop, some texture (buttons), some nature (the bird), and you can put this in both a winter cabin home and a beach home and it would fit nicely!
