Easy breezy beachy!

This week, I combined the Sketch challenge 183 with my Double Dare Challenge. Francie G challenged us to create an outdoor scene card. I chose to do a summer card. I am not much into "scenery" cards persay, so I used images from my new Studio G sets (from Michaels) -with kind of a collage feel. I used some retired SU DP that I received thru WishRAK from my friend Sherrie. I don't know the name, but I loved the beachy feel of the colors. The bling is from a new $1 line at Michaels. You know Michael's hit and miss, but this last visit I hit the Jackpot! Even black bling!! Whoot- whoot!

I colored these little images very lightly with my blender pen and ink squished in my lid. I outlined all the images and sentiments with my new clear Sakura Stardust pen. In case you haven't made it over to SCS sketch thread today, here is the sketch. Very versitile and I see many possibilities with it!

Card Deets:
Stamps - Studio G clear stamps
Paper - bashful blue, brocade blue, mellow moss, retired DP
Accessories - square punch, dimensionals, bling, blender pen
