The challenge for this Blog Hop was to take anything that makes you think of Summer and create a project that fits the theme. When I think of summer....I think of hitting the beach...so I decided to create a fun beach card...complete with sand! I created my beach scene using Kiki Art pattern papers for my umbrella, sky, and water... I stamped the "just a little hello" from the Oval office set onto white cardstock...then turned it into a sun by cutting pieces of Kiki Art pattern paper and adding the triangles behind the oval stamped image. The sun and umbrella were added to my card using Helmar Zap Dots. I added real sand and sea shells to the beach using Helmar 450 adhesive...and my card was done...
