Summer Fun at the Beach

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Creme

Today begins the new challenge for the month over at Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Challenges and our theme is 'Summer'! we want to see what summer means to you! :)  You don't have to use a Whimsy stamp or digi to play along, so get busy creating! you could win one of several cool prizes. please stop by the challenge blog to see all of the great projects made by the team to inspire your creativity!

I am using the newly released 'Beachie' image by Marika Collins on my card, along with a sentiment from the Summer Memories Sentiment set. The Daisy Doily Die was used for the pink piece behind the main image, and it just happens to be on sale at the moment. in fact, you can get quite a few great deals in the sale area right now. hint, hint, hint!

papers are from the Authentique Favorite collection. waves were cut with a MFT die, sentiment punch is Jenni Bowlin, sun is made from star and circle punches, and Martha Stewart leaf punch was used to mimic seaweed. little seahorse flair & flower are Prima, linen thread is SU!, and buttons are vintage.
