The Most Fun Ever!!

Thats how much fun I had making this card!! :D lol

Morning everyone :)  Todays new challenge over at Sweet Stampin is 'Summer Fun' and we are sponsored this week by Stamp And Create who are offering the winner a massive $25 gift certificate and also one of our regular monthly sponsors - the brilliant Joanna Sheen .

Now I have had this wee fella for ages and this is the first time I have used it! Shame on me!  Its one of my favourite Mo Manning images as it just makes me grin!

I coloured with PM's and Flexmarkers and attempted for the first time to make a cloudy background - that was fun!  I cut out my own clouds with my Cameo and just coloured round with the Glacier Blue Flexmarker.  The Pinwheels and Starfish were also cut on my digicutter, and added beads to the starfish with glossy accents.  The papers are MME, and I printed my own sentiment.  I also used Marianne and Spellbinder dies and MS punches.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Mos Digital Challenge - At the Park
Papertake Weekly - 3-2-1 - 3 Starfish, 2 pinwheels, 1 sentiment

Alison, your beach themed card is darling! I love the soft color palette you've used. The beiges and pinks together are so pretty. You've done a beautiful job of coloring the stamped image of the child with the sand bucket on their head. Your little beige die cut plants look fantastic. Love the "starfish" and your pinwheels are the perfect dimensional embellishment for such a cute card! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
