Summer here we come!

Today marks the start of another Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge!!
This weeks color theme is

All these pieces are cut from scraps! :)  I know the background yellow and red layer is from the DCWV summer stack from last year.  I thought it fit the summery/beach feel of this card well.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts "Big Hugs" stamp set.  I added a ribbon along the top and bottom of the sentiment box using my ATG tape. Two self stick black gems and a Prima Itty Bitty flower (with matching ribbon tail) finish off the sentiment block.

The sand pail is from Simply Charmed. I cut all layers at 2 1/2". The sea shells are from Stretch Your Imagination. I cut two sets of them at 1" out of white shimmery paper, giving them a lovely shiny fresh-from-the-ocean look. I added the shells to the sand pail layer and matched the shadows behind the shells where they came beyond the sand layer.

Here is a close up of the shells, sitting neatly on the sand layer (DCWV photo stack). I added white gel pen stitches and doodles through out the card. I use a Gelly Roll brand pen.

 The inside of the card also got some of the matching scraps.

We'd love for you to come on over and play along with us at Die Cuttin' Divas!

Your card definitely puts me in the mood to head to the beach. My kids and I would always collect shells when we went. We had buckets filled with tiny shells that we collected while walking up and down along the shoreline.

Stay Creative,
