Summer

I love summer time. It's nice to be able to relax and spend some time at the beach. I love the beach. It's so nice to take a nap and read a good book while hubby and our children do their thing. To celebrate summer and my love of the beach, I made this card using the pail and shovel image. It's a fun image to color and I added glitter to the sand to make it sparkly. I also used green ink to distress the edges of the papers, added some stitching on the patterned paper, popped the buttons on with glue dots and used 3-d foam tape to adhere the image to the kraft cardstock.


I am linking to the following challenges:
FOSTV - summer

What a cute little bucket of sand. I like how you added the glitter. I love how other masterpieces of creation, like the sand and dew drops, snowflakes etc.. just sparkle like diamonds. I enjoyed reading how this card "reflects" you. Thanks for sharing with the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. I hope you are having a blessed week.
