I'm a Guest Bar-Tender!

PhotobucketRemember the card I entered in the 'Raise the Bar' challenge a couple weeks ago? It was chosen as one of their 'Top 3' that week and this week I have the privilege of being 'guest bar-tender' on their blog :) The theme is Celebrating Summer and it was the perfect excuse for me to ink up my new 'Emerging Turtle' stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms!

In addition to Raise the Bar, I used the current Mojo Monday sketch and I'm entering it in the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, "Life's a Beach" because this card just makes me want to hit the beach... wouldn't it be fabulous to swim with the turtles? I love the sentiments here... with just a couple weeks left of school, we (school staff!) are constantly reminding ourselves to keep our chin up, the end is near ;)

Anywho... here's my card! All the deets are listed below :)


Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms (turtle, starfish, sentiments), Tim Holtz (splatter texture)
Die Cuts: Tim Holtz (border), QuicKutz (label)
Paper: BoBunny Paradise collection, Bazzill Dot & Kraft Cardstock
Accents: Crackle Accents (Ranger), thin twine, 3D squares
Ink: Distress Ink... just Distress Ink (I added Ink Potion #9 by Tsukineko to the turtle)

Tara! This is awesome! I just love your style... this card is full of summer and the beach and yet feels very relaxing too... I think it's the Blue and Kraft combo. Wonderful job!

thank you for entering it in our challenge at Stamptacular this week!
Cheers
