Life's A Beach!!!

LOL That sentiment just cracks me up!! I created this card for the sketch challenge over to Susana's Custom Art and Card Design on Papercraft Planet. The sketch was created by Suzanne Dean. I love how the main image is tilted to the side. I'm such a straight line girl, that doing that gives me gas. LOL But, in the spirit of competition, I did it!! And I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. In addition to using the sketch, you also had to use a stamp that Susana carries in her store. Well, luckily, I had just received my most recent order from her a few days before I made this. This funny little image is from Eat Cake Graphics, and it just makes me smile. If you love a sketch challenge, you should run right over to Susana's group and play along. You have until 2/23, and if you win, you get to choose a stamp from Susana's store. Woohoo!!

Stamps: Gwendalyn's Ready for Sun (Eat Cake Graphics), Twisted Sentiments (MFT), Itty Bitty Sunshine (Lockhart)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper: Snocone CS (Poptone), Summer Sun CS (PTI), White CS (Neenah), Hoop La Collection DP (Rubber Soul)
