Seas the Day

I really hope you all are having some gorgeous weather like we have been having this week. Its been so nice! We have stayed in the pool all week! Since I've been enjoying this lovely weather and getting ready to go to the beach this weekend I thought I would share a card with you using an adorable Sugarplum. This image is waving Emma. Isnt she a cutie??! She was in last years ATS summer release. I wanted to combine a couple of challenges for this card so I went looking for a sketch and color challenge. This weeks color throwdown is cool carribean, pumpkin pie, and so saffron. Emma is colored up using copics her hair is colored with y21, y26, yr24, and e25. I had to give her a little tan so for her skin I used e00, e11, and e13. For pumpkin pie I used yr15, yr16, and yr18 and for cool carribean I used bg10, 11, 13, and 15. I added some sand using e31 and e33 then made some dots using e33, e35, and e37. For my layout I used Jens sfytt . I had alot of fun with this one. I pulled out some (very dusty) polka dots pallette of prints in saffron and pumpkin pie. Its really hard to tell in the pic but the pumpkie pie layer under the nestie is embossed with the large polka dots SU plate. I even used a wave border punch I took from Mamas recently. Shopping at Mamas is the most fun!LOL!! J/K Mama! Okay thats it for me today off to go jump in the pool now! Have a great one!
