Cute as a Button Challenge - #71

Hi there,

Gosh, the months are now flying in, I can't believe it's August already! Well that means one thing, a new challenge has started today over at Cute as a Button. As normal our challenge theme is 'Anything Goes', but we do have an optional twist and this month it's 'Polka Dots and/or Stripes'. Why not give it a go, we'd love to see what you create...so with that, here is my project for this month, I am using this super image called Summertime, isn't she so adorable, I hope this inspires you!!!

For this I have used a 5x7 kraft card blank, on to which I matt and layered polka dot card along with sandpaper for sand and blue colour core card for the sea, this I sanded and also added die cut waves for effect. The image I carefully cut out and coloured with promarkers, adding some gold pen to highlight hair. I decorated with a couple of shells, die cut foliage and wood 'FUN' to finish...

Materials Used
