Surf's Up!

I made this card for my little cousins 1st Birthday. They are having a pool party for him so I thought these guys fit the theme quite well. I started with this weeks sketch from The Sweet Stop. All of the paper is from Bo Bunny. I used three colours of Double Dot and a old summer line that I had in my stash. The images came from a image swap I did a few years ago, so I am sorry I can't remember what company they came from. The ribbon is also from Bo Bunny. Can you tell I really love Bo Bunny product. I have quite the stash that I am trying to encourage myself to use rather then hoard. I made the bow with a bit of ribbon and a needle and thread. I coloured the images with my copics and finished the front one of with my EK Success corner punch. In the top corner are three Stamping Bella Bling Dots. I also used some Glimmer Mist on the waves to add some sparkle to the water. The "Happy Birthday" is from a CTMH set that they gave for free a few months ago.

On the inside of the card I used some more Bo Bunny Double Dot paper. I then stitched around the outer edge with my sewing machine using some white thread. I used another image from a swap, I believe both images are from the same company and I believe even the same set. I coloured him with my copics and cut him out. I also used a little
bit of liquid glass on his mask to give it some added dimension. It is hard to see in the picture. His bubbles are clear Bella Baubles from Stampin Bella. I used my computer to print the sentiment and mounted it on some more Bo Bunny Double Dot paper. I finished it off with a pair of sandals I cut out of the Bo Bunny pattern paper I used on the front.

I entered my card in the sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop. I was also able to enter it at KL Stampin' and Scrappin' for their Summer and Beach Theme Challenge.
