Cricut 360 - Challenge #9 - Relax

Happy Friday everyone, I'm so excited that the weekend is finally here!! It's Friday which means time for another fun challenge over at Cricut 360This week's challenge is to create a card or layout which represents a relaxing scene.  Being from Miami, nothing is more relaxing than siting under a shady palm tree at the beach with a nice cool beverage. Ahhhh, so relaxing!!  So, that was my inspiration for my project.  I decided to use the "Pack your Bags" cartridge, I really love this cartridge!! While there are many great cuts on this cartridge, this is one of my favorite cuts on there.  Here are all the details of my card:

Card size is 6x6
Cartridges used: Pack your bags (Girl on lounge chair @ 3.25") and Life's a Beach (Palm Tree @ 5.50")
Solid cardstock: Recollections
Patterned Paper: My Scraps (I remember buying it at JoAnn's)
Glittered Paper: DCWV Citrus
Sentiment: Scrappy Moms Stamps "Sun Kissed"
Embossing Powder: Stampendous "Jeweled Gold"

Okay, so now it's your turn.  Show us what you find as being relaxing.  As always, your project must have a Cricut cut and you can use any cartridges you like.  Can't wait to see all your wonderful creations!
