Totally Papercrafts ,,,, The Beach

Hi all :-) ,, summer is HERE !! it is very hot and sunny here in Gozo and I have already had a few trips to the beach ,,, lovely :-)

This week it is Scoopy’s turn to choose the theme ,, and guess what she chose !! ,,, Yup ,,,,, The Beach !! her FAVE place !! :-)

If anyone is interested in seeing my fave beach click HERE ,, Ramla Bay Gozo ,,,, aka Paradise !! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Melissa at Meljen Designs and one lucky entrant will win 4 digi images :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-) I used an Anya stamp, this one is in a set of 3 called Rain, Snow, Shine ,,,, no prizes for guessing which one I used :-) I coloured her with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. I made the background design myself using my Copic Air Brush and a Spellbinders scalloped nestie to make clouds, the flip flop paper I have had forever and have no idea where that came from ! I made a ‘sun’ using a petal cap and inspirational epoxy sticker and the butterfly was made using a MS Monarch Butterfly punch, I added a star using my brand sparkly new Die-namics stacking star die,, I LOVE this !! The sentiment was in an unmounted HM set.

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Totally Papercrafts Challenge to see them Smile
