'Splish Splash............"

Hi and how's everyones week going? This is my second week as Guest Diva at "Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge". Todays card features both a cute image from SEW MANY CARDS and great papers from PAPER TEMPTRESS. She has the most wonderful selection of all kinds and colors of papers. The pink, orange and green on my card this week are all papers that can be found at her store. I urge you all to check out both our sponsers the week.

Here are the sketches for this week MMSC #62

Here are the details:

Image:  "Jayden Snorkeling"  Sew Many Cards, unknown dollar stamp fruity drink, flip flop border stamp, tropical flowers small background stamp. Jayden was colored with Copic Markers

The flip flops were stamped onto fun foam and cut out. I beaded a thin piece of wire and attached it to the flops for the strap

An old washcloth was sacrificed for the towel
The innertube was printed and stamped on pink from Paper Temptress. It was them cut out and pieced onto the image after receiving several thick coats of DG3 Gel.

The palm tree is a Spellbinders die and the lei was made fashioned out of sponged tiny Prima flowers strung on a piece of green sponged white florist wire.

K and Co. DP represent the tiled pool deck and a white die cut paper frame complete the surround of the swimming pool. 

I really enjoyed creating this fun cute card. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
