Summer is what we are all REALLY looking forward to here in Aussie so  Challenge #61 at Wee Memories – Summertime, called out to me.  I have made an “easel” card for the challenge and have tried to make it look a bit like a photo 😕 with glossy paper behind the stamped square.  On the base of the easel I have cut a rectangle of striped paper and added fringes to try to represent a beach towel.  Does it work???  I have also tried Jenny’s method of scratching up Kraft card to make sand for the beach but I also added a touch of  “brown sugar – Sparkly Fluff”.  After the effort of trying to make a sand effect you can barely see it because the towel covers most of it – duh.  (Can you see she has a little bit of sun burn across her nose, toes, knees and shoulders?  Should have put on more sun screen). 🙂

Here is today’s card –
