Surf's Up!

This is the card that I'm sending to my in-laws as a thank you for our upcoming vacation! Woo Hoo! My M.I.L's one stipulation is that I make her a scrapbook of our trip. I've never scrapbooked, so that will be an adventure in itself!

Today's challenge on Caardvarks is to make a card using:
2 stamps
2 patterned papers
2 circles
and 2 ribbons

For my 2 stamps, I used C.C. Design's new Summer Set. I LOVE all of the images! This company is so awesome! For my sentiment, I used Papertrey Ink's Faux Ribbon set. It's jammed packed full of perfect sentiments for everything!!! For my little surfer, I stamped onto shimmery white CS (SU) and colored in with Watercolor Wonder Crayons using my Aquapainter. I used red and silver Stickles to color the surf board. Then, I doodled with a Night of Navy Stamp n' Write Marker (SU). I used a Coluzzle to cut out the circle (CIRCLE #1). Then, I punched my second circle with a Marvy Giga Scalloped Circle punch. I used a small paper punch around the scallops to give it a little more design. For my sentiment, I made an opening with my Word Window punch (SU). I stamped my sentiment on a scrap of Creamy Caramel CS and positioned behind the window, then adhered it in place. I embossed the 'ocean' using a Cuttlebug folder.

For my patterned paper, I used two of Creative Imagination's fun summery designs. I added a band of navy grosgrain to the center of the card and topped with hemp. I wasn't sure if hemp counted as a 'ribbon', so I added twill to the top corner of the card too.

This sketch is another of Julee's (Poetic Artistry) for Blogger Bingo.

Now - I've got to go and get ready for this vacation!!!
