Life's a Beach - CYCI #126

The challenge for my first week as a Design Team member at Can You Case It is to use dies on your card. I started my card making addiction with a Cricut, so I eschewed die cutting for a long time. But I also never used the Cricut! Then I bought a better Cricut, and also never used it. Then I finally decided to buy some dies and use my Cuttlebug for the purpose it was intended. It took me a little while to get over busting up the perfect, plastic plates, but once I did, I never looked back. It didn't take me long to want a Big Shot, and now I love die cutting a whole lot.

I have been on an ocean kick lately, so this beach card practically made itself...well, if you don't count all the cranking I had to do to the Big Shot. I found this amazing sand looking paper at my local scrapbook store, and HAD to use it to make a sand castle! I hope to see you play along with the challenge this week.
