Just For Fun August Challenge

When you work for the school district and August sneaks up, you start trying to figure out where your summer went and what else you can squeeze in before the school year starts.  Definitely time for one more trip to the beach.

With the beginning of August, a new challenge at the Just For Fun Blog also begins.  Our team chose the perfect challenge theme for this month – Hot, Hot, Hot!  I can so relate to this as I am sitting in my house waiting for them to come install my new air conditioner.  I am also excited to spend time with my daughters at the beach soon, so that is what my card is all about.

Awhile back fellow designer, April Williams, showed me a colorful technique with embossing folders.  I used one of my samples to create the sunny background for this card.  I added various layers and a die cut with lots of open sections.  Then I added my stamped images and sentiment.  The flip flops, beach chair, and sunglasses all come from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Beach Unmounted Sheet.  The sentiment is from their The Seasons Word Block.  I also added a few jewels.  Not sure if they are water droplets or sweat.

We would love to have you enter this new challenge.  You can find all the details and the link, along with more inspiration on the Just For Fun Blog.
