It sure is summer in Michigan.  It has been in the mid 90's for weeks! Perfect challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments celebrating summer, beach, surf and sand.  Here is my challenge card...I wish I was Hawaii! So its not on the Pacific Coast but the sand and water inspired me. 

Use card stock to make decorative paper and added dimension.  I stamped the sun, brown polka dots, and used SU embossing folder for raised dots.  Oh yeah..and the back of the card is textured by using SU's choc. chip refill to add ink spray. 

I used a dimensional dot to raise the pineapple.
