Here's Cheers!

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
It's our Photo Week and our Host this Challenge is Lisa
choosing a very Summery Photo.

There's nothing nicer than relaxing by the sea 
with a cool drink is there?
I got the stamp set I used here as part of a package
such a long time ago and it fitted perfectly
 for this week's challenge.
I simply heat embossed my cool drink, 
coloured the centre then carefully went 
about inking up my sky and sea background even adding
some breaking waves with a white pen. Then came the sand
and I used a new paste I  bought at a craft show recently.
It is Metallic Relief Paste by Cadence in Champagne and has
a nice gritty texture.  I coloured my fruit and bubbles,
some with glossy accents 
and the bigger ones with Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Backed it with matching card stock and on to my card base.

Pop over and see where our Guest Marlena and the Team
went with our Photo and come join us in the Gallery.
You could be our Chic of the Week and in the running
as our Guest Designer in August. 
Hope to see you there.
Thanks for dropping by
