Coastal Cabana & Bermuda Bay Thank You

During my blog hopping I saw a card made my Patty Bennett at and loved her card so much just had to CASE it with a few changes.

The new InColor Coastal Cabana is such a beautiful color and it pairs so beautifully with Bermuda Bay.  The new InColor ribbon is great too although it had to grow on me I was not taken with it in the beginning.  But now I'm hooked!  It really adds some fun to your cards.  I was also able to use the new Lots of Thanks stamp too, just love the "a thousand thanks" sentiment.
Quick Tip:  The new Hexagon Punch is the absolute best for adding the tails to your banners.  Simply slide your strip of paper into the punch, line up the point and edges of the banner strip on the outside edge of the punch and punch!  Perfect banner tails every time!

 I ran the whisper white paper through the Big Shot using the Chevron folder and THEN punched out my peekaboo hole, saving that punched portion to use on the inside of the card.  Made a super cute focal point for the inside :)
Again, I so appreciate you stopping by to take a look and please leave a comment I love to hear from my readers.  Card ingredients and item numbers listed below for easy ordering so you can make your own cards like these.
