Fun in the Sun

Click on image to enlarge.

Since summer has truly set in and I found this cute freebie (not sure where) by Snapping Dragon Designs, I thought I'd do a "summer" card. Nothing says summer better to me than a day at the beach. I added the horizon line so I could add the water to the scene; I thought it looked more inviting. The only Cricut cut on the card is the circle behind the image. I used a variety of papers and my prisma pencils to color the image. The ribbon is from Michaels and the border is by EK Success. The card looked a little too plain for me, so I added the faux stitching.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch

Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - summer

Papertake Weekly - stitching

The Creative Cottage Challenge - summer

The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - water

Allsorts Challenge - create a scene

Hi Debbie!
I'm glad we found eachother! :-) I enjoyed having a look at some of your cards here. You're very creative. A fellow challenge freak! LOL I just love the challenges and try to multi-challenge my cards which I find a challenge in itself sometimes. We can be in touch now. Stacey's a good gal :-) I knew you made cards but not being nearby hadn't really seen "your stuff" . Now I can.
