Inner Tube Girl

I love this new image from Dearie Dolls. The images from Mary Ellen are free to use. But you should give Mary Ellen credit.   Dragonfly Journeys challenge this week is to do a card with a beach theme so I had to play along and you can too. Jeannie was one of my DT members at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Her cards are always the sweetest ever. I wanted to play last week but ran out of time. Her theme was Cowgirls and my Paparazzi  Jewelry theme is also cowgirls.  With all my decor the cute cowboy boots, wagon wheel and everything that I have for my display, it's just so fun.

I decided to do a shaker card and layer my card. background. One thing I would do differently is put the foam tape close to the inside edge on the bottom where the sequins were added. You really don't see them that much unless it's laying flat. I also used the You Float my Boat stamp set from Lawn Fawn. Darice emboss folders for backgrounds clouds and waves. My Favorite Thing Dynamics Blueprint Die and W-plus 9 die for the opening of the frame and a Simon Says Stamp die for the sand.

I was getting a lot of shadows on my card. It too late at night to be taking pictures. But hope you enjoy it anyway.  Until next time have a sweet day!

I made this card for my Mother in law for Mothers Day! I am doing Gnome cards as she has a cute set of Gnomes in her yard. She has had them for years. Just recently re painted them.  You may remember I made a boxed set for her a few years back. I am doing the same thing on Gnomes. The set I am using is a recent release form My Favorite Things created by Birdie Brown. It called  You Gnome Me.  
Birdie Brown used to sponsor our blog
when she was doing her digis. So I love Birdie Brown images. Jeannie  introduced us to Birdie Brown  when she was on my design team. Her blog is Dragonfly Journey's Check out Jeannie's new challenge over at Dragonfly Journey's.  Her challenge is to make a Daisies card. It's fun and easy to play along.   I recently got this set from  Paper Smooches Denim and Daisies so I decided it would be fun to combine the two set. Well what do ya think? It been awhile since I created. Would like to start doing lots more again.  Have a sweet day everyone!
