Beachy Birthday - CAS

This is the third card I have created and posted today. I enjoy entering card challenges and there were a few that had deadlines approaching so I had to step up the pace.

My friend, Lori, who lives in Florida, loves going to the beach. A beach party is always in order for her birthday so I decided to make this birthday card referencing the beach and water. It's been a few years since I have been to Florida to join in the fun but I always send her a card.
I kept this card CAS because of the challenge requirements. A panel of white was texturized with an embossing folder that has a beach theme. Some of the embossed words are sand, water, shark, coral, fish, ocean, etc. The panel was adhered to the white card base and the black die cut frame was adhered. The sun was die cut and backed with foam tape to pop it up. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card base.
The inside of the card was decorated with a black frame and yellow die words, Happy Birthday.
