Beach Bum

I have to say this little Edwin stamp looks like my little boy :) My son loves the water more than anyone I have ever met, including myself! (We just got back from the pool) He took surfing lessons for a day last Summer at age 6 and took right to it. We don't live close enough to the beach to go regularly though so he is stuck with body surfing or boogie boarding :) Okay back to the card, this is one of my new Magnolia stamps from the Summer collection. I added the sunset and water in the back ground with a stamp by My Craft Lounge. I colored with water color crayons, used Stickles glitter on the water and sponged the edges. The paper is Snorkel by Cosmo Cricket and I added some brads and ribbon. The sentiment I made with the Karen Foster snap together letters. The card stock is taken with teal. Love these colors and this paper! I saw it used on another blog and hunted down where to get it because I liked it so much. Now I see Archiver's has it on clearance :( Oh well, I like it so much it was worth full price.

The layout I came up with from a mix of a couple different cards, I wanted to be able to show as much of this paper as I could. It is 5.5 x 5.5 inches to accommodate the paper and image. I wont be mailing this one! Thanks for looking :)
