Tuesday Throwdown in July - Week 3.

Good morning everyone! This is my 2nd post for today. This is the Tuesday Throwdown post. This is my third week as a Guest Designer for them. It has been a thrill. I have a couple of more weeks to go. I really appreciate the opportunity!  This week the theme for Challenge #204 is Take Us On Vacation:

For this challenge I used Beach Baby from The Stamping Boutique.I colored her with my Copic markers. I did a bit of decoupage to her. I popped her and the sandcastle. I used chalk on the sky. I created the sentiment myself and added the gems. I also added the banners and the little bucket, ball and sandals. I also added gems to the inside to finish it off. I thought it worked alright for a nice Summery Birthday!

Fabulous card. Love how you colored her in. I pinned it for future reference because I have similar Copic marker numbers/colors that I could use the help with blending them to make it look as awesome as yours. Love the sky using chalks. Thanks for linking up at Chalk Ah Lot.
