Summer Daze

Summer is in full swing here in the Cincinnati area, but I don't have a tan to prove it. I have completely wiped out my stash of birthday cards, which is a good thing!  I need to get the creativity flowing again and come out with some fresh new ideas.  While I am pondering away what is next I just wanted to share with you few cards that I have made for flamingo/pool party challenge that I am part of.  I hope you enjoy them.  Let me know what you think.
items used:  tamparatus, stampin write markers (blushing bride, pink pirouett, calypsa coral, hampton arts stamp set  flamingo/pinapple, silver mirror cs, turquise cs, whtie cs, salmon colored twine, multi colored pearl accents.  

Items used:  mermaid lagoon distress oxides, mento ink, dsp, and pearl accents and white cs for the base

I am submitting these cards in the following contests:
