Tilda is having "Fun in the Sun!"

I luv summer. I luv beach, white sand, sunshine, blue sky, ocean breeze... I'm definitely a 80Fs girl, all year around! The temp. never gets lower than 74F (the lowest, one day in January in the past!) in Guam. Hawaii was a bit cooler. I remember I wore a pair of jeans to go out at night in January & february. One morning, after my graveyard shift, the temp. dropped to 58F, and I was shocked, and it was cold, taking a bus home, early in the morning... . I can make Summer cards all year long! lol! I only wear jeans to go to see the movies & doctor's office in Guam, all year around! Anyways, this is my card for "summer" challenge blogs; the Official Magnolia Inspiration challenge "Summer", All that scraps challenge "Magnolia challenge Summer Time", Stamptacular Sunday Challenge "Fun in the Summer", and Papertake weekly challenge "Here comes the sun"!! I wanted to color this image and make a card with it in the summer, and summer is finally, officially here, so I decided to use this image, with the float image. I used sakura clear glaze pen over the float to give the Shiney vinyl look. I used sakura clearstar gel pen for her wings. I used the scrap paper from my scrapbook on Guam, the ocean & the waves and used the nesties. I used dimentional glue foam for this main image to give a bit of dimention. I used the punch to make flip flops. The sentiment, sun & seagulls are from Inkadinkado. Others are all left over stickers from my scrapbook on Guam; seashells, plumeria flowers, and bubbles. I added 2 gems in the end. Oh "the sand" paper is also from the left over from the same scrapbook :-) I tored it using my hand, to make the natural line for the sandy beach. ... oh how I miss the beach & ocean breeze!! Hope this card made you feel like you were on the beach, too, feeling the ocean breeze... Thank you for stopping by my blog today!!
