How About Some Summer "Aqua"?

I don't know about you, but this time of year I start thinking about the ocean, the beach and tropical places. I just got a new spool of the gorgeous aqua ribbon and it reminds me of the crystal clear blue water of the gulf.
 Well, thanks to a good friend (wink) I happened to have some paper with the same theme!! Some Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue! Perfect colors for the ribbon!!!! So a couple of cards were born!!!

On this first card I not only used the beautiful aqua ribbon, but also the Beatrice crocheted lace and a bit of Baker's twine.

Here you see the Baker's Twine in the button.

For this one, I only used the aqua. I just wanted a pretty bow to highlight the tropical stamp images!

This just shows a little detail. The stitching is all done with my Zig marker!!! The embossing and stamps are from the Susy West WOW collections.

Now, if I can just take a trip to the beach!!! I would love to see these colors in person with the water and tropical blooms!!! I hope you enjoy the cards, and urge you to "think tropical"!!!
