My Sheri Crafts: Guest Designer

I was chosen as the guest designer for this weeks's challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  The challenge this time is: 

"Splish Splash"
create a project with an image that features beach, water, swimming, etc.

Here is the card I created:

The card is 5 3/8"x4 1/8," made of white card stock.  I made all my layers at 5 1/2"x4 1/4," so I had to make the card base slightly larger since I like having a border around my images.

The background, sky and waves, are from the "Crocs Rule" Cricut cartridge.  I welded a rectangle to the background in order to make it the correct size.  I also cut a rectangle from the kraft card stock to act as sand.  I added some white gel pen to the waves.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Beach Bums set.

The palm tree is from the "Pirates and Mermaids" cartridge.  I cut it at 3 1/2."  The girl and the beach ball are svgs from SVG Cutting Files.  The image is called Tween Beach Girl.  I cut her at 2 1/2."  I hid her eyes so that I could use a Peachy Keen face.  This one comes from the Cartoon Bombshell Face Assortment.  I added some white gel pen doodling around the towel and beach ball, then I added some polka dots to her bikini.  I colored in her lips with a shiny pink gel pen, then added some blue to her eyes with a marker.  The girl and the beach ball are adhered with foam tape.

So, that is my beach-themed creation.  I can't wait to see how you are inspired by the theme of "Splish Splash!"
