Beachy Keen

So I'm super jealous at the moment. The majority of my LOSTIE sistahs are in Colorado today meeting up for a fun filled stamping weekend sure to be full of many giggles. To keep the gals who couldn't make the trip entertained, my sweet sistah Debbie decide to issue a challenge. There are 4 participants. We each had to create a kit to send to one another and we will be posting our cards from now through Sunday. It will be so fun to see how everyone came up with their own style and used the different parts to put their cards together. First up is Anna's kit. She sent this adorable Penny Black image. It's from their new 12 Days of Christmas set that is a riot! I colored my swan in with Koh-i-nor pencils and OMS. I decided to keep her nice and bright to match the summery colors. One of Anna's rules was to use at least 3 of the flowers. That was definitely my challenge, but I love what I came up with. They are like little sequin flowers that come with Sprinkle brads. I attached the photo turn under that top flower, that was my moment of genius after playing with them for quite some time, LOL. I was flipping through my sets trying to figure out the perfect sentiment, when I stumbled across Tickled Pink by TAC. Beachy Keen just seemed to fit. I used the oval punch to cut it out and cut the circle with my Coluzzle. Definitely a fun card and some of my favorite TAC papers! Thanks for the challenge Anna. To view the other cards click here.
