** 8/24/15 Top 5 at Crafty Cardmakers and More! **

Hi everyone! I'm absolutely thrilled to share with you my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #60 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by Pattie's Creations, Kith & Kin Stamp Co. and SLS Lines! Come play with us! We've infused another 'anything goes' challenge into the mix because we know you love 'em! ;)

I used the outrageously cool Surfer Rory digi from Kith & Kin Stamp Co. for my all occasion card. I had a good time putting this together. I pulled out a mat stack that I've had for probably 5-6 years and used three of the coordinating papers. I 'waxed' her board with a nice coat of Glossy Accents - sure wish the photo showed how good it really looks! ;)

I drew the sun. I consider myself a paper artist but can't draw worth a flip, so I was excited when my sun turned out 'okay' enough to use on this project, lol! I created the sentiment on my computer.

I created some waves (and some of them are somewhat choppy for her riding pleasure) and some sand dunes. No dunes are complete without a lobster lurking nearby, lol!

And here's the inside, which I kept fairly simple. I found a great surfer's quote online which I thought would make a great sentiment!

Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Premium White, Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise, DCWV Mango Frost Mat Stack
