Here's another card inspired by the Make It Monday challenge. I Used PTI's Simple Alphabet to create my Relaxation themed sentiment. I was able to put all 3 words on my long clear block at once. I staggered the letters for a sort of Wave effect on the teal background. I left enough space between the words to go back and stamp the tiny flower from Heart Borders and Corners . I repeated this staggered across my sentiment piece. I tore a strip of kraft cardstock and layered it at the bottom of the teal as the sand.
(where better to rest, relax, and enjoy than under a palm tree near the beach, right?)

Below is a close up of my palm tree. I freehand cut the trunk after scoring my brown cardstock in a criss-cross pattern and tucked the lower end under the "sand". I used oval punches for the leaves, sponged with Burnt Umber ink (after folding and snipping a little). I glued them down letting a few stick up over the top of the brown card base. Last I added 3 stickles coconuts.
