Ride The Wave...

Hi all! Hope you've been having a Fantastic week so far. It's been absolutely summery and gorgeous here, so today I am back with my latest card creation inspired by the summery sunshine and the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #112      
I did flip the sketch though, to better accommodate my fun loving Whimsie Doodles Ride the Wave Bear. I just love this Adorable surfer bear, and couldn't wait to color him up.

I printed my super cool surfer dude and sentiment onto Flourishes classic white and colored them up with my trusty Copics.   I added the clouds behind him thanks to the wonderful directions my fabulous teammate  Marilyn Scheller emailed me, though her clouds are much better than mine lol.. Check them out in this darling card she made... I just love her Amazing clouds and coloring too!  Maybe if I practice enough, my clouds might end up almost as good. I hope, I hope..lol 8-)  
I  added my mats and BG using digi dp's from Basic Grey's Recess set, inked all my edges with Tea Dye Distress ink and popped both panels up with dimensionals.  I layered my sentiment onto a darling eyelet circle that I made up with my Eyelet circles Nesties set and then popped it up with dimensonals as well. To finish it all up, I added two cheerful colors of bakers twine I got from M.A.D. Stamper Finds, that went just perfectly with my card.. And that's it, pretty easy peasy! 8-)

Hope you are all having a Fabulous week & thanks so much for dropping in!
Thanks for stopping by!
