You Are Better Than Summer Sunshine! FMS300 and SIP #111

August 12, 2017

Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  


I LOVE the beach and I am so excited that this is the 300th sketch for the Freshly Made Sketches Team.  That is an amazing accomplishment!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I found a beautiful piece of DSP of a gorgeous sunshine in my stash for the background.  I added Island Indigo card stock behind the beach ball and sunshine piece of DSP.  I added the yellow polka dot DSP behind the embossed Island Indigo rectangle.  The flip flops were stamped on the yellow polka dot paper and fussy cut using a Simon Says Stamp set.  Glossy Accents was added to the shoes and a little candy dot was added to the flip flops.  I used the sentiment from the same stamp set and sponged the edges with Island Indigo ink.  A few more candy dots were added for fun.  Baker's Twine was added with a bow for a little more pop.  

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Now, I am off to enjoy some summer sunshine in Atlanta, GA!  It has rained all week and I need a doze of Vitamin D!  

Have a great weekend!
