SNSDC61 Beach & Sand

The challenge over at the SNSDC61 is to create something with "beach & sand." I gave this card to my daughter for her birthday because she loves the beach and the color red. I chose some red dsp from Echo Park and paper pieced the umbrella to match. The image was colored with Copics, along with some white gel pen accents, and I added a piece of mesh with some mini colored brads. The SNSS image was die cut using a SB labels 18 and the sentiment is also from SNSS.
It's going to be another hot one here in PA, so stay cool and have a great Saturday!
