SNSDC7 All About Summer

The challenge over on the SNSDC7 this week is to make a card that's "all about summer." I used this SNSS Cocoa & Cookie sandcastle digi image and colored it with Copics. I tore a few scraps of cardstock for the "sand" and added stickles to the edge. The punched crab is bright red, but photographed much darker for some reason. I added eyes with a black marker and white sharpie marker. The cool caribbean background was embossed with a Spellbinders Impressabilites and I added a few snippets of ribbon with crab images. Cute huh :)
Have a great Friday and thanks for stopping by!
