Beat the Heat

Have you had a chance to check out the new challenge at the Sisterhood hosted by Vickie? The theme is "Summer Heat". What comes to mind when you hear that phrase?  

Unfortunately, here in Northeast Ohio the temperatures have been more like lukewarm and wet, so this was a real challenge for me. When I found these Jolee stickers my creative brain cells started working and here is my project.

The base was created with white card stock. Then I added these beautiful designer papers by Recollections. The striped paper was folded down 1/4" and then adhered to the top of my card. When the card is standing it looks like a cabana on the beach. Using my 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" oval punches I created the mat for my sentiment. I used pop dots to give the panel dimension and Jolee's stickers were used to create the beach scene.

As much as I love working in my craft room, I could really go for some relaxing time on the beach with a good book and a cold beverage. But for now I will have to settle for a chair in the back yard and pretend I am on the beach.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
       Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
       Card Mania - Anything Goes
       Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
       Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

We would love to see your take on this theme, so why not head on over to the Sisterhood to check out the projects my sistahs have created for inspiration and join in on the fun?

Have a beautiful creative day!
