KLSNS Challenge #37

Today Risa was the host for the weekly challenge over at KLSNS and her challenge to us was to make a Summer themed card.  You can make a card that has a summer theme (beach, picnic, gardening etc) or use bright summer colors. 

And here is my card:
I went for a beach theme this week.  I used one of the adorable new Sweet November Stamps, Penelope and Shelly, from CC Designs.  I sponged the background panel to look like sand, water and sky.  I colored the images with copics and then added crystal effects to the turtle's shell.  I had this Designer Paper for awhile and thought it would look really cute with these stamps so I pulled it out and finally put it to use.  If you have any beach pictures to scrapbook, this is a great image for that ~ it is larger than I had thought it would be and is the perfect size for a scrapbook page! 

We would love to have you join in our challenge this week and see what Summer means to you.  Stop on over at the KL Stamping N Scrappin blog for all the challenge details and to see the fantastic cards from the rest of the Design Team.
