WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGES WWC131 - KATH'S "ALL ABOUT BIRTHDAYS" CHALLENGE

 
 
 
Wow!  Another fun challenge for birthdays.    There is no restriction as to type of birthday card.   Your card could be for a woman, a man, a girl, a boy, or a small child.   My card is for those adults who like to relax and what better place than at the beach. 

Kath is our Hostess this week and she has created a beautiful inspirational card.  Check out the other ladies on the Design Team for more inspiration to create your own and link it to the challenge on  WWC 131.   
 
I just love this new stamp set and die cut - "Colourful Seasons and Seasonal Layers".   When I first looked at it - I missed the little drink glasses and they are just perfect to create a scene of totally relaxing on the beach.   It makes a perfect scene for a "Birthday" card.
