Penny's Challenge #290: Anything Goes

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! Doing a little catch up blogging, as I keep starting these posts and not finishing/posting. Where is my poor brain? If you have seen it, PLEASE return! It seems I need it... ;)

Today's card features 3 Little Summer Girls from All Dressed Up. They are SO sweet! I especially love the sweetie in the hat.







The picture did NOT show my sketchy sky very well. I colored these beauties with Prismacolor Pencils, including sand and sky for their day at the beach. The sky was light and cloudy, and no matter what I did I couldn't make it pop in the photo. But, I DID do it! I was actually pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I followed a sketch for this card, VLV Sketch #1 for August 2016.



I've added some clouds across the background panel from my new Lawn Fawn die set (finally got it!), and some lace across the bottom just to show that you can be girly and still have fun in the sand too! ;)
