Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Hi there…


Hello there, Today over at The Paper Players it is time for Sketch Week. I absolutely had the best time putting this card together and thought the sketch that Laurie chose this week was super fun! I love when cards have an unexpected tilt to them. I have had this great background paper for quite sometime and so happy I finally used some of it. It worked so well with my little beach babes.

I am linking my card up over with Darnell at NBUS as well, as it is the first time I used these cute beach babes from Sunny Studios. I am also linking up at Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge where all you have to do is add a Sentiment.

Card Details: The first thing I did was make a stencil with my wave die from MFT and then made my water using Oxide ink. The sand is also part of a die from MFT- Beach Builders set which I inked up to make it look more realistic. The girls and palm tree are all from Sunny Studios-Coastal Cuties/Sending Sunshine. The Hibiscus is MFT. I colored them with Copics and Prismas. I framed my little scene in with some star paper from MFT. The greeting is from one of the Sunny Studios-Coastal Cuties set.

This might be my favorite card of the year so far!
