Anything Goes with Dies

This is a card for my niece,Stephanie, who loves the beach , watermelon, drinks with umbrellas and beer. I decided to make her this twist pop up card featuring her favorite things.  

You can't see the texture and dimension in this card from the photo of the entire card.

I added Liquid applique to the beer mugs to look like foam. 

Some prills around the watermelon and Wink of Stella to give it some shine. 

Some sand colored flower soft adds texture around the chair.  This was time consuming but fun to make. 

You can find the dies I used at the Dies R Us Store.
