Summer Sunshine

Today is the first day of August 
and that means a new challenge starting at  the 
and this time our theme is
Summertime Fun!

I had a little fun with this challenge by first using 
TH Distress ink 'Mermaid Lagoon' and simply sponging it on
glossy card stock.


I die cut 4 little black frames using Memory Box Square Shaker Frames.
In the frame of each, I added 
 a seahorse from Memory Box Swimming Seahorses,
and a star fish from Impression Obsession Mini Shell Set.


I finished my card with a die cut sentiment using

I had planned on tying a red/white twine on, 
but had adhered my panel to the card base as I forgot..geez!

So lets see YOUR Summertime Fun cards at the
and you will want to visit for sure as the Design Team has
wonderfully summertime creations there!
