For my card I chose to use two of the d.p. papers along with some shiny blue, bright green and pink cardstock. I love the cute Close to My Heart Beach Babe! Isn't she a cutie?!? She and the little beach chair/umbrella/ball image are colored in Copics and she is shown off predominately with dimensionals. I used the fish brads to swim in the "ocean waves". I couldn't resist using some letter brads I've had forever to spell out the theme of "Keep Cool".
