Fun in the Sun

Hope everyone's week is going good so far.  We've been busy wrapping up Spring Baseball and Teeball seasons here.  I made this bright, fun little card and hope you enjoy :)

Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Yoyo Yellow cardstocks
Pattern paper from a stack that's name is long forgotten, sorry
Stampin' Up Pumpkin pie ribbon
Jolees' Beach Pail, Shovel and Orange flowers
Stampin Up Just Beachy stamp set
Stampin' Up Basic Black ink pad
Adhesive and glue dots

I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and the colors suggestion from WhoopsieDaisy and Viola :)  The Orange strip of paper under the ribbon is the flip-side of the polka dot pattern paper.
