I know Memorial Day usually marks the beginning of Summer, but for us now that it's the 4th of July, Summer is truly here! Since Memorial Day the weather has been decent--temps in the 70's but we've also had tons of rain as if it's early Spring! However, as of this week true Summer weather has arrived--we have the hot 80 degree temps with the muggy, humid weather that we are used to for Summer.

Ironically, the challenge this week on the DRS Designs Blog is Summer Sun, Summer Fun!  DRS Designs is giving away a $10 store voucher to one lucky winner.  I don't qualify for the prize, but I played along anyways.  Here's my Summer Challenge card:

I created the beach scene first by stamping the starfish and the bucket from the 4 in 1 Beach Background (1099D).  Then, I masked them and stamped the Seagrass (128L) over top.  I sponged on brown ink for the sand and used Copic Markers to shade the sky and color the starfish, bucket and grasses.  

In the center I added the Summer Wording Square (826G) that was colored with Copic Markers,  fussy cut, and adhered with foam tape for dimension.  I added yellow Stickles to the sun's rays for a bit of bling. Some yellow pearls and some twine wrapped around the top of the card front completed this A2 card nicely.

I hope you're having a fabulous Summer! 
Thanks for stopping by!
