Surfs Up!

I combined the colors from the Embellish challenge - Nautical theme with the Wee Memories Summertime and the Lily Pad Cards Challenge to create a patriotic themed card all into one project.

I saw this cute Snorkle Tobie  at Some Odd Girl and envisioned him at the beach with the surfboards done in the patriotic colors! Some Odd Girl is the sponsor at Lily Pad this week.
The surfboards are hand drawn and created using Rocket Boy paper from October Afternoon.  The Sand is sandpaper torn along the edges.  I added a little spanish moss for texture along with the seashells from Hero Arts. The sentiment is also Hero Arts. 

This is my last week with the Lily Pad Blog Challenge.  A truly wonderful team and good friends! 

The fabulous Design Team: Alice Wertz, Deborah Nolan, Lin Brandyberry, Nancy Krueger, Sherri Thompson, Vicki Papaioannou

Have a sunny day!
