To My Fabulous Friend

So in the beginning of June, I entered this card into a new blog challenge I came across -  Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge - and lo and behold, I was chosen the random winner of their "Bag of Things' prize - which included papers, die cut pieces, ribbons, sequins, a stamp and even a die!

For each challenge there is a Thing 1, a Thing 2 and a Thing 3 - you will find a full explanation over at their blog!  You can do just Thing 1 or include them all.

 So in my Bag of Things prize - they included supplies that fit their current color challenge with the option of using ribbon/fibers-  so I put together this card to join in!
The only things I used from my own supplies are the stamp, from  Papertrey Ink - Birthday Cheer, foam dots and Tombow Glue!

Where is Summer??!

That's what everyone  here in New England is asking - we have a hot humid day and then we are putting the blankets back on the bed and turning the heat on!?! 
Well -  summer is here on my card today!
I water colored the background on water color paper - first brushing over the panel with water and then adding watercolor paint with a wet brush - tan for the sand - dark blue for the ocean waves and lighter blue for the sky.  I added this cute little layered die cut umbrella - popping the top up on foam dots and this lovely seaside sentiment.   I used a new embossing folder I just purchased called Level Curves. I thought it looked like a few things - a topography map, snail marks in the sand - and/or marks in the sand underwater after the waves have gone by!  Anyway, I thought it added nice CAS texture in white!

I was inspired by the photo on the bottom - from Caron's Beach Website

Do not use patterned paper -  and use a die cut
 
Use a die cutting machine -  I used my Vagabond to cut my umbrella die.
