Boy, is this stamp set perfect for me right now, because I really do need a vacation!  I just love this cute little stamp set!  I decided to do a CAS center step card.  I colored the palm tree with my Spectrum Noir pens and added a little star fish button in the sand at the bottom of the palm tree.  I used the "Scenic Selections" set for the birds.

Very pretty, Patty. I love the paper and those colors are great for your palm tree. I like the added shells and star fish button.

You were certainly thinking about beaches and sunshine in your colour choices - pretty card.

Great choice of DP to go along with your "vacation" theme, Patty! I love the oranges/lime green colors. It certainly looks like someone's idea of a vacation!

As always, a very pretty card. The only thing I can see wrong with this scene - is that we aren't sitting under that tree with umbrella drinks in our hands! LOL!
