Life Is A Beach: PARTY!

OMG!  (Oh my gosh!)  I LOVE this Cricut Cartridge: Life Is A Beach!!!
 I got a wonderful envelope in the mail yesterday from Mama with GORGEOUS papers in it!  I've never seen paper this beautiful.  It has foil on it and is embossed.  I called to ask her who it was made by, but she had torn the cover off and didn't know.  If any of you guys know, please tell me.  The collection is so my favorite colors with blues and purples and oranges. 
I made a birthday card this morning for Chris, a family friend, and I used some of my new papers.  :)
I started out with a dull sherbet card base, added some ribbon and papers from Mama.

Oh, it's already so pretty!  LOL  And yes, I know the ribbon is crooked, but everything I do is a little off. :)
Then I used Cricut cartridge - Life Is A Beach and cut a pineapple drink.

I sponged on the pineapple with ColorBox Pigment Stamp Pad: Cocoa.
I also cut the word "PARTY" out and added it.
Here is my finished card.  Enjoy!

    I love the embossed, foil pattern on the card base...and no worries about the ribbon, I am typically a bit off myself;o) Plus, you can't tell with the yummy, pineapple drink in front of it. Such a super FUN creation!!!! You make me want a yummy, fruit drink!!
