Beach Babe

Hello everyone, hope you're all enjoying your weekend.  I am.  My boss has just gone on holiday and with my holiday added it means I won't see him for 4 1/2 weeks, woohoo!!

My card today is a slight departure from my usual offerings, in colour, style and image.  It's not pink and it's not particularly girly.  Today I had a go at another style I've never tried before, a crossover card, it was really easy to make and I think I'll be making many more.  The image I've used today is 'Gladys' from the Golden Oldies range by Art Impressions, isn't she a BABE!!!.  This is me in a few more years.  I already have the 'curves'  hehe!! and it won't be long before I have the grey hair to go with it.  The papers are from Prima's Jack & Jill paper stack and core'dinations cardstock.  The sentiment is also from Art Impressions.  I used a Dienamics die to make the flower and Martha Stewart branch punch and some other punched leafy bits I had hiding in a box.  I used a Martha Stewart lace border punch.  The ribbon and crystal are from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.  oxo
