Life's A Beach!

I have another white on white card for you today, that makes two in one week, wow...  

As you know, this kind of card scares me.  I'm used to matting all my layers and making them pop!  I still matted my layers with white for this one.  

The cute little girl on my card was a freebie from Michelle Perkett Studios at Paper Craft Planet and to enter into Michelle's challenges you need to use her images, so...  I love her images!!  

I used a new Cuttlebug 5 x 7 embossing folder for the largest panel and the Swirls embossing folder for the other.  The Spellbinders regular Oval die is popped with foam tape onto the scalloped oval.  I colored the little girl with Copic makers, printed a mask to cover her and sponged Palette Seascape ink around her.  It looks like my sponge wasn't as clean as I thought.  There are a couple of clouds in there too.  Next I used my Zig two way glue pen applying the glue to where I wanted the sand.  I wrote about the sand in yesterday's blog post.  I put some of the left over in a little zipper bag for future use.  I added Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects to the star fish and decided I'd like to add a couple of real shells with it as well.  I just had to attach a shell to her beach shovel.  

Challenges for my card:
Michelle Perkett Studios - White on White 
2 Sisters Challenge - Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon - Use Nestabilites
KL Stampin N Scrap - Summer & Beach Theme
Cute Card Thursday - School's Out For Summer 
The Play Date Cafe - Color Theme
