Make-a-Card Monday: Wear Sunscreen!

I was really inspired by the color challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations this week. This card is for my blond on the first 'real' day of summer, June 21st. I made another for my brunette that I will share later. :)

I used this Wags N Whiskers 'Water Babe' image with DCWV Baby Girl stack. This paper is great for all sorts of things...not just baby girls. I colored my image up with Prismacolor pencils and added Glossy Accents to her goggles. I created my own sentiment with glitter letters and added the rhinestones and ribbon from my stash.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you healthy and happy.
