beach surfer

My entry today is for SEVEN challenges.

I have used this week's sketch at Sketch and Stash and used my new Magnolia stamp and neglected beads.

At Daring Cardmakers the challenge is lace - I have used paper lace.

Stamp Something want you to take inspiration from your summer vacation. Mine is a beach.

At A Spoon Full of Sugar the theme is travel, where you can use a holiday theme or form of transport. I have a holiday theme and I think the surf board could count as a mode of transport!

At both The Pink Elephant and Cute Card Thursday the theme is 'summer'.

Finally, at Creative Inspirations the challenge is 'spots, dots and circles'.

Papers are from the Cosmo Cricket ~ Snorkel collection and I used Boardwalk, Umbrellas and Carbonation. I inked the edges and layered onto Bazzill.

The image used is Magnolia ~ Tilda with Surfboard and I coloured her with my copics.

The 'BEACH' sign is an Imaginisce Snag'em Stamp which I embossed with distress embossing powder.

I used paper lace for the vertical strip.

The beach pebbles and seahorse were beads from my stash.

Thank you for looking.
