On the Fringe

Hi all!

The weekend is nearing and boy, am I ready for it! I don't sleep so well when it's this warm indoors, so some mornings this week I sat at my desk with small red eyes, stifling a yawn ;)

Our challenge this week is "Fringe", it could be either paper or fabric but give us some fringes! I decided to stick to paper and thought that a beach scene would be perfect here. Think hula skirts and those parasols's you see everywhere along the coast. Jimmie was such a treat to colour in, great image! The sentiment set is great too, perfect for summery cards. I combined it a a sun stamp to create a little beach scene.

* Digital Delights Surfing Jimmie & Summer of Smiles sentiment set, coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noirs
* First Edition Up, Up & Away
* Crafter's Companion Embossing Board (Using a border to create the waves in the background)
* Inkadinkado Fun in the Sun stamp
* Washi Tapes (Yellow and Green) from local store (Hema)
