Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a great week. Before I tell you about my card or this week's challenge, I want to send a huge thank you to my new followers - I am so glad to have you along!
Onto this week's new challenge at Crafty Catz - it is the lovely Carol's turn to host and she has chosen the colours of summer for our challenge. Digital Delights, our sponsor for this week, has provided us with some cute images to play with and I chose Scrubby Ted for my card.
Other materials used:
Cardstock - Bazzill
Papers - Inque boutique (from a few years ago) and Imaginisce (Splash dance)
Other - surfboard is paper covered chipboard (Inque boutique for both); pearls; sand; flowers - are cut from Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge, distressed, inked with vintage photo and misted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Bronze; sentiment is computer generated. Think that is it.
The artsy view:

I would also like to enter this card in the following fun challenges/linky party:
Craft Us Crazy - Red, white and blue and/or summer
Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - My favourite things (some of mine are beaches with soft white sand, making my own flowers, flourishes, pearls and designer papers)
Top Tip Tuesday - T is for ? (I have a Teddy bear, Three flowers, Tim Holtz distress inks, and the colours Tangerine and Turquoise, oh - and the teddy is also holding a Towel! and I just noticed I also have Three designer papers too)
My Tip: To make your own dimensional flowers, mist your die/punch/electronically cut flowers with water until they are quite moist. Crumple them up to give them texture and then gently un-crumple them, leaving the amount of 'wrinkling' desired. Shape them gently, curling the petals up or down. Allow to dry thoroughly and then layer, add center pieces and/or glitters/mists. The dried flowers will have wonderful texture and will be very firm, keeping their shape very nicely. Now, hopefully I remember to add Tip by my name! :o)
