The Paper Players #60 - Soak Up the Sun

Hi there,
Today's post is for The Paper Players Sketch Challenge this week.  I was going to use the card for the Create with Connie and Mary colour challenge and realised when I had finished that I had used stamps that weren't Stampin Up. No matter the colours worked well and I am happy with the finished project.  I sponged the base mat with the three colours Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and So Saffron.  I coloured the images with my markers and an aqua painter.  I made the Ladies hat with the small oval punch and the Itty Bitty Flower Punch.
This card was awarded the 'Cut Above' Award at The Paper Players this week.

Stamps:  My Favourite Things - Hit the Beach, Studio G Clear Stamps, Amazing Creations A771 Footprints
Card:  So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon Black, So Saffron, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Blush Blossom
Embellishments:  Pearl, Crystals, So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon (R)
Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, Small Oval Punch, Itty Bitty Flower Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape, Sponges, Aqua Painter, Carl Sun Punch
I am attending the Stamperoo's Stamp Camp this weekend, doing a workshop presentation and a Shoe Box Swap, I still have some preparation to do so I am not sure if I will have any more challenges to post before the weekend.
Thanks' for stopping by today.  Have a good weekend, hope you get some stamping time.
