Summer fun

I tried to make this card on Friday, but I had to ruminate on it all weekend because it just wasn't coming together. I finally finished it last night. My hubby helped with the surfboard.

I used the colors from Color My Heart, the sketch from As You See It, and the theme of "surf's up" from Curtain Call.

I took a Glacier panel and affixed it to a White Daisy card base. I grabbed a Slate woodgrain scrap from the Dakota paper pack, and tore some Sunflower cardstock for the sand (I didn't have the new Tangerine color). I stamped the sun in Sunflower, the tree in Pear (no Willow either), and the sign on Whisper with Slate ink. My hubby cut out the surfboard from Poppy carstock and I cut it in half lengthwise and layered it onto White Daisy. I colored the trunk of the palm tree with Poppy ink and then layered some Slate over it to darken it a little. The "No Worries" sentiment is from the Hello Summer stamp set.

I hope you all come join me at these fun challenges!
