By the Sea

I designed my card for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #228. I modified the Sketch using an oval vs a circle as my focal point. I used a digi stamp from From the Heart – Pelican by the Sea. I coloured him with Copic markers. I used a hello button/twine from my stash and paper from Kaisercraft.


I also entered my card into the Summer Challenge at Fairy Tale Stamper, For the Birds challenge at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards, Out on the Water at Daring Cardmakers and Red Rubber Inspirational # 129: By the Sea

UPDATE: My card was selected as one of the Top 3 at  Chocolate, Coffee and Cards.
