My Creative Time: Design Team Challenge

Hi, today is a brand new Designer's Challenge over on the My Creative Time blog. You can create a project of your choice using the Sketch, Colors, or Photo OR any combination of the three for inspiration. You can find them at the bottom of the post. 

I first cut out the adorable little doggy from the Loyal Friends stamp set. I stamped on the face from the same set and modified it using one of the mouths from the new You Make Life Sweet stamp set. I used a sunglasses die from the Winter Snowman dies to help create the cool surfer dog look. I chalked the cheeks and added white gel pen accents. 

I cut out the surfboard using a die from the Surf's Up stamp set and the waves were cut using the Make a Splash die. I stamped the sentiment onto the waves from the also from the Surf's Up stamp set using Versamark ink and Recollection's Snow embossing powder.

The sun was cut out using a couple of the dies from the Build a Banner stamp set. I added a small American Crafts twine to it.

For the base of my card along with the pattern paper mats, I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame dies.

I finished the card by adding some gold sequins from my stash.

Here are the photo, colors, and sketch for the current challenge!

For more design team inspiration please head on over to Miss Emma's blog.
