This card is for this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge - Beach Theme. It is also another of the cards I completed for the House Mouse and Friends Merry Go Round Swap I am hosting.
This House Mouse image is called Keeping Cool and was sent for the Merry Go Round swap by Chris/BeachBum - appropriate isn't it? :) I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. I sponged the sky with blue ink and added Stickles to the ice cube, shell and here and there on the sand. The sentiment is a $1 stamp from Michael's that I bought a few years ago. It's one of my favorite sentiment stamps - I use it a lot. I added some bling to it to spruce it up a little. I embellished the card with white and green ribbon and a lime slice charm. I added Stickles to that to spruce it up a little too. The cardstock I used is Bazzill, and the orange polka dot paper is Kay and Co. The other papers are scraps from my stash.
The finished card size is 6" square. I used the sketch from last week's House Mouse and Friends challenge, which I didn't have a chance to participate in.
Thanks for stopping by!
