On the Beach...really?

It's no secret that I'm not a sun worshipper. It only takes one look at my creepy pallor (or my alabaster beauty, depending on your opinion on skin that matches standard white cardstock. :)) to figure that I don't spend a lot of time in the outdoors, so these week's challenge was a bit of a...challenge. We're doing beach themed projects at For Fun Challenges.
The Paper Shelter is this week's sponsor, with the winner receiving the generous prize of a $15 gift certificate from their store. Chosing one of their stamps for the challenge was the easy part. They have the cutest cat and mouse stamps ever!

And, here's my card! Check out how happy that cat is! I even made the sun look flattering by going for my favorite...glitter. Even my friend Jen's husband, Alex, who suffers from glitterphobia would approve of this card because in this case I used self-stick glitter "paper" (it's actually a plastic sheet that's got a generous amount of the sparkly stuff smooshed between the sheet and a thick layer of adhesive. It's really handy for punching or die cutting. It's not the cheapest, but it goes a long way if you're careful to line up your cuts. The papers and glitter fishies are from an SEI kit club selection. I love their stuff! The crab was a wild card item...something that's been sitting on my work counter for quite a while, waiting for the right project to come along. Ahoy! Here it is.

Stop by this week annd play with us!
