A Bikini? I WISH!

So, let me start off by sharing my funny story of the day! I do NOT wear bikini’s. I used to.  I still have a couple from my pre-child days, but after pregnancy, ones body tends to shift sideways…. My shifted both ways! HA.. My stomach? Don’t get me started. Remember Jello Jigglers? Well that is my stomach. Anyway, my husband always says I should be in a bikini. Not gonna happen. But today, I decided to roll up my tankini top a bit to get some sun on my neon bright stomach? The outcome? SUNBURN! On my stomach. Ouchie Ouchie on my tummy and stark whiteness on my back! HA! It’s my own fault… I really only had my top rolled for half hour, but that is all it took! See? That is just a sign from the good Lord above telling me I have no business showing my stomach in public!

SOOOO, hence the card. I had to use Lawnfawn’s Swimsuit Season for this card! The sentiment was made from Lawnfawn’s Harold’s ABC’s! I sure I do WISH looked in a bikini… Sigh. I used PTI’s cloud die cut for the sentiment. I tried a scalloped circle, a conversation bubble, 3 different shaped nestabilities and the cloud finally dawned on me. Perfect for the card. On these hot Florida days, we long for a little shade courtesy of the clouds… I was inspired by two different sketches. The DeNami Sketch Challenge #3 and 2S4Y challenge.
