InStyle Challenge - Summer

Mary has cooked up another fantastic Wednesday challenge over at the InStyle Stamps blog. This week we want to see your summer cards! To get all the details for the challenge, click HERE!

I decided to use the digis Leila and Ariel for my summer card. When I think of summer I always think of the beach....I am a total tropical girl.....don't know why I live in the midwest.....but I do love to go on vacation to the ocean/beach! These two girls are so much fun and so summery to me! I wanted to create a beach scene so I put Leila on the beach watching Ariel swim in the ocean. TH distress inks and cosmetic sponges were used to create the sunset.
