Sun Sand and Surfin' in SUMMER!

What screams SUMMER?
Spending time at the Beach of course.
And this is the word that Maria chose
as Hostess for Word Week at Just Us Girls
So of course I went with the sand and surf for my card.

 Now I did a bit of cheating here using a
pre coloured image from The Paper Shelter
 called Happy Times Beach Boy.
I went with the waive theme for my background
inking with Memento Potter's Clay
and is Memory Box Texture Waive.
Did a bit of distressing and layering.
Sentiment is from Paper Smooches
Branches at the bottom are also from Memory Box
and sponged again with Memento Potter's Clay.
Added some glossy Accents to the surfboard but too hard to see.
Welcome to Carol Mayne as our July Guest.
So nice to have you with us this month.
Hope you pop over to Our Blog
and check what everyone has made
using the word Summer.
 Thanks for dropping in

Hi, Ina! Sometimes it is so much fun using a precolored digital and creating something fantastic with it, like your card today! The layers are beautiful, and I love your magical sense of warmth on this little beach-goers scene. The sentiment is fabulously displayed! I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend! hugs, de
