Thinking of Summer Time

Hello!  I have been playing with some challenges, one of which is to make a card for the guys so I thought all guys like to go to the beach and also like to be the king of the castle.  That brought thoughts of this sand castle stamp from Repeat Impressions so my card developed around that.  I stamped the castle and the sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics E30, 31, 33 and B01 and BG000.  I edged the image with the brown ink after trimming and attached it to the card base of a Crate Paper Patterned Paper  on a turquoise paper. I used the pattern detail to adapt for the sketch from Seize the Sketch #19 challenge.

Oh, Theresa, this is beautiful! I love the way the blues at the bottom mimic waves, and that little scene couldn't be more perfect. Thanks for coming to play with us at Seize the Sketch!
