This is my first time playing along with a Paper Players challenge, but given the theme was Summer Holiday I couldn't resist. You can check out their blog here and play along.
I find it very difficult to separate the sketch and photo inspiration challenges at the Fusion Card Challenge, so fused them for this card.
I took the colors from the inspiration photo, including the white text, and the banner idea from the sketch. Instead of stripes, I have swirly embossed lines which also represent water (instead of rain).
I love this Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards stamp and imagine I will be using the sentiment a lot in real life as summer rapidly approaches and I chase my kids off electronics and outside.
I used a little adhesive under the starfish charm and on the ends of the hemp cord to hold the banner in place - the anchor and ship's wheel are My Favorite Things dies.
Thanks for stopping by,
