Hi there, Whimsy fans!  Have you seen the Whimsy Build an Island dies? What's not to love?!  There's everything you need to create a fun summer/vacation themed card. Ooh, a retirement card!

I started my card by swiping Ranger Alcohol Pearl Inks across a glossy card base.  The resulting sheen is exactly what I was looking for to represent the sun setting on a hot summer day where it's starting to get a bit hazy as the temperature cools.

I cut out the Build an Island dies and created my little scene.  The clouds I sponged lightly with Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick and a bit of Mustard Seed.

The Snark Attack sentiment is stamped with Versamark and embossed with Ranger White Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Fall is my personal favorite season but summer is a close second!

Feel free to check out my other creations on my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, or on Instagram.  Have a great rest of your week!
