Happy Summer!

Supplies: Stamps: Gina K sentiment Paper: GKD white, su red, yellow, and green, scrap of grey, sandpaper Ink: versamagic purple hydrangea, su cherry cobbler edging on sand pail, pear pizzazz for edging on umbrella, memento dandelion for edging on shovel  Accessories: cuttlekids diecuts, 1/2 inch circle punch, small star a sizzix sizzlit
Guess what?!  I made it to the final round for the CAS summer design team.  For this round we had an inspiration picture:
When I saw the picture I had no idea what I was going to do.  I knew I wanted to stay with the "Beach Party" theme.  So I was paging through my binder (I have stamped, die cut, and punched all of my supplies in an embarrassingly huge binder) I saw the set of beachy Cuttlekids die cuts and the wheels started turning.  Since the image was a set of "sand toys" I thought sandcastles, sand, and sand toys!  That's when I decided to dig around for some sandpaper!  I love the texture it adds to the card (just like the texure rollers add texture to the sand).  The bowl in the image has a raised star in it, so I added a raised star on the sand pail.  And I used the colors of the sand toys on my sand toys, and a splash of purple for the sentiment.  I kept the base white because I really like the contrast with the bright colors, just like in the picture.
Now the hard part is to wait.  Entries are due Tuesday and the reveal is Thursday night.
