Life is Better at the Beach Card & Bookmark

Hi Crafty Friends,
I was inspired to make a summer card and matching book mark for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #202 Summer Lovin'. I used the Newton's Nook Summer Moments stamp set and created a beautiful sunset background for these stunning ladies.

It is always fun to see your take on the challenges!
