Here's my summer fun beach card. 

I tried something new, first I stamped image on vellum, then on cardstock and colored the cardstock stamped image , then glued the vellum image to the colored image and cut out and sewed around the edge.  The vellum gives it a soft look.

I am entering this at the following challenges, in no particular order:

Sparkles wants to see some summer fun
Things are very clear at Paper Issues, they want to see clear projects, I used vellum
It's summer days at Sugar Creek Hollow
It's a shore thing over at Pile It On
Layers is what's going on at Simon Says Stamp and Show
Fab n Funky wants to see summer holidays this week
 I followed this sketch from Sketch Saturday

Thank you all who stopped by to have a peek and leave a comment
