"Sparkling waves in glee..."

Hello all! Hope you had a great weekend. It has been crazy but fun around here getting ready for the new school year. I have a cute and fun card for you today! I created it for the newest challenge over at The Pink Elephant blog. This week, Lori challenged us to create a card using the “Summer Fun” theme. So here is what I came up with!

Here are a few things to highlight about this card. The image is from this week’s sponsor Simple Betty stamps and it is called Lola Summer. Don’t you love this image? It is so fun, cute, and cool… The patterned paper I used to create the scene is from Making Memories. I just cut a portion of it and attached it to the white cardstock. As usual, I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

I created the sun by stamping a circle using a solid stamp and yellow ink. Then, I added a yellow button on top of the circle to hold the sentiment. And finally, I cut out the umbrella from another patterned paper I had and placed it near the image to complete the scene. I love the fact that I can read a few lines from a poem that has been printed on the umbrella. Guess what the poet is talking about ~ yes! “…sparkling waves in glee…” I need to find out who wrote this poem!

Okay girls, I think that’s all for now!

 Oh before I leave, I would like to thank my sweet friend Beatriz for the beautiful card she sent to me for my birthday which is tomorrow.

Here is a picture of the card she sent, it is so beautiful! Thanks Beatriz for making my day so special!

Thanks for visiting again and taking the time to write your comments, they are really appreciated!!!

Have a wonderful day.
