A Fun Sunny Day

Hey there everyone.

I hope you are having a sunny day! The sun has finally come out here in Southern Cal... don't know why we're having such a cool July, but I'm loving it. We had a pretty good shake, rattle and roll yesterday afternoon... they called it a "moderate earthquake" at 5.4 but I was hanging on to my desk (*grin*). The card I've made today for MOJO146 is all about summer. I made it for our grandson's birthday... I'm sure he'll 'relate'.

This card uses my new favorite stamp set from Verve called Relax.  I love it... there are so many fun elements in the set.  This card basically involves coloring and cutting/pasting.  I stamped off several surfboards, waves, palm trees and a few sunshines and colored them with my Copics.  Then I cut them out and started arranging the placement.  I used another favorite... Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket for my paper and matched my coloring to it.  I really enjoyed making this little vignette using Julee's sketch.  It doesn't show up very well in the picture but while the white paper was still in the oval nestie, I sponged so saffron around the shows IRL.  I used some cork for the dunes and a little piece of mesh for rest the boards against.  I used twine for an accent 'ribbon'... the card is on a kraft base.  I hope you enjoy it and have a great day! 

Wishing you fun in the sun...
