Sending Sunshine Your Way!!!



Yesterday I played with a few of my older High Hopes stamps and I wanted to share this card with you. As you know, I love sketches......I really should start keeping a sketch book of them! Hmmmm....I'll work on that. Anyhoo, I was blurfing around and found a new challenge site called Our Creative Corner and it has a couple of my fellow DT members on it. They will be posting a challenge each week and this first week was a sketch challenge! Yay!!

So I stamped Beach Girl Patti on Wausau bright white cardstock and coloured her in using my Copic markers, of course! The card base is Cameo Coral and I used coordinating papers from the Imaginisce line, A Shore Thing. They have sparkles all over them and are really pretty in real life! I used my Nestabilities to cut Patti out and the sentiment is by Lizzie Anne Designs from the Shore Thoughts set. I tied some pretty pink satin ribbon that I picked up at Target in the wedding section, around the middle of the card and pop dotted the focal layer. The finishing touch was a pair of iridescent flowers by Creative Impressions that I attached with a couple of green brads! So summery!



Well today I only work in the afternoon, so I'm going to do a few things this morning before heading in. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!!

Great Card! I saw that beach paper in the store (the one with the words on it) and wondered how I would ever use it. Your example is great!

I love making summer cards and scrapbook pages, but often find something is missing. It doesn't make you 'feel' like you are at the beach.
Your card however makes me want to jump into the water!
