Hit the Beach

Hi again!  I've got a second post for you today to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy doing.  Good thing I got well ahead of the game before my surgery, because I still can't sit long enough for coloring.   I hope I will be able to get back to it very soon.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are Kiwi Kiss and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Paradise Beach 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Glimmer by Elisabeth Bell for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Aqua, Green and Crystal Stickles here and there for some sparkle.  I cut out the image and popped it up on foam tape.  Some Kiwi satin ribbon and an aqua button finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by again! I promise to be around to visit as soon as I can!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

One Sweet Challenge (hit the beach)
Sweet Pea Stampers (photo inspiration)
The Corrosive Challenge #201 (crop it or cut it out)

  4. Love the card Carla, she's adorable. I'm just getting caught up in all I've missed over the last few months and didn't realize you were going into surgery. I hope you heal quickly and that it isn't serious. I can totally empathize, haven't been able to sit and color for weeks now due to my ankylosing spondylitis flaring up...hopefully it's back under control and I can get back to having fun and enjoying everyone's creations again :). All my best!

  5. Carla, this is so sweet and so pretty. I am sure the person that receives it, will be smiling!

  6. Fab take on the sketch! Love the yummy colors! Great coloring, as always, and such an adorable image! :^)
    Hugs, Penny
