It's all good

I've got a fun summery beach card today.
Can't you just imagine lounging in this chair with your favorite scrappy mag and a cold beverage??
 
The inspiration for this card came from the Pinspiration Challenge #10 which is this photo:
 I'm not sure why but folding chairs make me think of summer - you know, pulling them out for a big backyard bbq or a family reunion. So I went with the folding chair and the colors for my inspiration.
 The stamp is from Unity and is called It's All Good.
I colored it in with my Spectrum Noir markers and colored the background with watercolor pencils.
 
Thanks for stopping by today!!
