Aud Sentiments Challenge - 20 June 2013 - Summer

Today sees the start of another challenge over at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog.  This time the topic is "summer" so you need to add a sentiment in relation to summer ie fun in the sun, picnic time, the surfs up etc.
This fortnight our sponsor is Stamp and Create.
For me summer means the great outdoors and especially the seaside and that is why I have decided to go through for a seaside theme card.  I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps image by the Artist Elisabeth Bell and is called "Beach Ball" and is available in a rubber stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps.
I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and have highlighted areas with my white gel pen.  The backing papers I have used are from a seaside paper pad from Crafty Individuals.  I used a chevron embossing folder and some cardstock to gain some texture and have highlighted the embossing with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink and my Inkylicious brush.  I have die-cut the image and mounted it on a Marinanne Designs die-cut which I have threaded twine through.  I have finished the card off with some ribbon, card candi, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some real shells.

It would be lovely if you could pop on over to the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog to have a look at the other creations by the Design Team for this challenge.  Next Thursday Team B will show you their creations.
