Got Beach?

I do love me some beach!  Sun, fun, the smell of suntan lotion (even though I know I should be saying sun block!), a towel, an ice cold Pepsi, and some cold water to jump into is my kind of the best time!  When I saw this cutie, Wryn Beach Babe, from Tiddly Inks,  I knew for sure she was mine!  I wanted to do her in some bright colors so I chose red and yellow.  Such a great summer combination.

I colored her with copics and used some ribbon, great Basic Grey papers, Nestabilities, and some crystal swirls and Cloud 9 gems on this cutie pie.  I used some Distressed inks on the background and a cuttlebug embossing folder on the papers. The bow looked like it needed something so I added some gem bridal floral embellishments.  It reminds me of sea glass and when my girls were in girl scouts and we used to camp at our jamboree, we would go out on the beach and look for sea glass.  Not so sure if I like that addition, but I'm going to let them stay!

Here is this sweetie up close:

I love this baby and am going to enter her in the following challenges:

Tuesday Throwdown
Southern Girls Challenge

I'm off to put a couple of other cards together and enjoy watching the rest of the Olympics.  Have a great day!
