Soak Up the Sun!

Soak Up the Sun Hi Peeps!

I’m back today with another challenge card – it’s a sickness, really . . . pray for me!  LOL  This card was created for the Impression Obsession challenge, which is to create a beach themed card.  How stinkin’ cute is this beach ball machine?!!  Perfect for the theme, huh?  This also fits the requirements for the Raise the Bar #21 challenge and the Our Creative Corner Challenge – to create a summer card.

I loved the colors and the wave effect in this DP, and knew that it would determine the color scheme for my card.  I also liked the idea of using cork for the sand – what do you think?  Cute, huh?!

STAMPS:  Gumball Machine (Impression Obsession), A Day At the Beach (PTI)
INK:  Tuxedo Black (Memento)
PAPER:  Undersea Adventures Wavy Stripe (TPC Studio), White CS (Neenah), Summer Sun CS (SU), Blu Raspberry CS (Poptone), Cork (MFT)
ACCESSORIES:  Large Scallop Die (PTI), Copic Markers, Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!)

That’s it for me today.  I’m off to the movies with my BFF . . . Ashton Kutcher, here I come!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thank you for the smile Karolyn! What a great image - a beach ball gumball machine, that makes total sense to me. ;) I love the colors on your card, such a happy vibrant palette to embrace the hotter days. Thank you for joining us at Raise The Bar this week and celebrating Summer. :D
