Hope you're enjoying the summer weather so far!?!

This weeks challenge is to follow a sketch with a beach theme.  Something to get us into the summer mood!!

I made this card for my best friend, Lyndsey.  She LOVES Ariel and the The Little Mermaid.  She even has a Little Mermaid dress!

To make this A4 card, I covered the front with blue and yellow card.  I used shaping scissors to shape the edge of the blue and yellow card.  I then used an actual birthday card I saw in a shop ages ago.  I cut the card in half and attached it to the left hand side of the card.  I used a blue Promarker pen to draw some waves on the blue card and then used 3 star fish shapes on the bottom right hand side of the card. 

I also used two The Little Mermaid embellishments to decorate the card.  I printed a picture of Scully, the seagull from the film, cut him out and attached in the sky.  I used a scallop punch with yellow card to make a sun and then used another pair of shaping scissors to make a small cloud.  I shaded this in with a silver ink pad. (not sure of the make).  To finish off, I used a Happy Birthday peel off on the yellow sun.

So that is my project for this current challenge.  Pop along to Gill McCall's Blog and see the other beach scene creations from the design team.  They're fantastic!

You can also take part in this challenge, just fill in the Mr Linky on Gills Blog and post your creation on your blog.  You can get some fantastic feedback from other crafters which can really boost your confidence.   So give it a go!  And don't forget to leave feedback for me and the rest of the design team!

Thank you, take care,
