The background was created using Distress Paints, a Gel press and some stencils. The word summer was cut using an alphabet die set. I used the Tim Holtz Dimensional Cutting Pad. Then fussy cut some of the Sunny Days patterned paper for the beach elements. I added some dimension to the umbrella and bag by using an embossing tool. A glitter brush added shine to the sunglasses and Pops of color added dimension as well. The background was placed on some Sherbert cardstock. The sentiment is from Moments stamp set from Scrapbook.com, it was stamped and then heat embossed to add shine.
