Hello There Crafty Friends,
I want to let you all know there is a new challenge starting today at...
The theme for this challenge is...
Just Beachy &/or Red, White & Blue

Here's my inspiration card for the challenge...
 Here's what I used to make it...
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Yasutomo Niji Pearlescent Watercolor Paint
Staedtler Watercolor Crayons
Unbranded Fireworks Embossing Folder
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool
Forever In Time Paper Craft Collection 'Pop Dot' Adhesives
Red/White/Blue Cardstock Paper

Here's how I made it...
I embossed the fireworks on a piece of white paper, then colored over the fireworks with watercolor crayons. Next I used watercolor crayons and watercolor paint to color the background, making the beach, water and sky. Then I went back over the fireworks with the crayons and left it dry. After making the card with white paper, I cut a piece of red paper to fit the center of it. Then I cut a piece of blue paper to fit behind the fireworks paper. Next I used the distressing tool around all papers, including the fireworks paper. Then I taped them all together. Next I drew and colored a sand dollar, starfish and shell, then fussy cut around them and added pop dots on the back of them. I then glued pieces of branches on the left side of the card and added the sand dollar and starfish in front of them. Then added the shell on the right side of the card. After fussy cutting around the image, I added pop dots on the back of her as well, then placed her in the center of the card.

That's my DT card. I hope you like it and it gives you some inspiration.
There's a great prize to be won, so hope you come join us in the fun! 

Happy Crafty Hugs,
