Pelicans and Summer -- for 3 Girl JAM

It's Thursday! And I love Thursdays, because it means I get to post for 3 Girl JAM. Many things in life make me happy, but 3 Girl JAM ribbon, lace, and jute rate right up there at the top of my list!
Our Summertime challenge is winding down, but summer is just getting started, so I made a summer themed card for today.

A pelican in a straw hat -- definitely summer, right?  I used 3 Girl JAM  crinkle ribbon from the Red, White, and Blue Bundle for this card.  I LOVE the red in this bundle.  It's such a true, vibrant red.
The image and sentiment are both from Great Impressions Stamps, and colored with Copic markers.  There's a teeny bit of Timeless Twine there in Firecracker, and designer papers are from Carta Bella -- Summer Lovin' 6x6 pad.  I used 2 Spellbinder label dies, and a tag die, and Close To My Heart Kraft cardstock.
