Beach Card

This has been a very productive (papercrafting-wise) 3-day weekend. I have completed 10 cards. Some have been posted here over the last couple of days and a three are held back. Two are DT assignments that you will see later in the week. The last is a card that fits a current challenge, I'm just not happy with it yet.

This card got revised along the way. It is for Stampin with the Dragon Challenge. The theme is summer. I immediately thought of this Doodle Dragon image of the four beach friends. I then masked it and added the Sew Many Cards image of the larger sand castle. I think they work well together. It seemed like the perfect card to use as an invitation to a reunion of friends or maybe a card to someone who couldn't attend the reunion. The background paper is SEI. The large blue brad and the gold Dazzles came from Paper Wishes

Someone recently left a comment that my cards are eclectic. I'm glad they feel that way. I would hate to start making cookie cutter cards. While I usually use a digital image on my cards, I have a selection from at least a dozen artists. I have used more than one image before and now that I know how to mask it is even easier to combine. I have been making some tea bag flowers and Cricut flowers in addition to purchased ones. I have a large inventory of ribbons and brads and eyelets and crystals, etc. Sooooo If you ever see me getting into a rut and churning out the same card over and over - Tell Me Please!

I already thought I was a follower but turns out no so I am now. Guess old age is really affecting me:) You sure had a productive weekend and this is one cute card. You have combined the images so well and used lots of fun colours.
Hugs!
