Smile and be happy

I made this card for the current Cuttlebug Mania 'Summer' challenge using a cute Bugaboo digi that was a freebie on their Facebook page.  I'm also entering the Cardz 4 Guys 'Make Us Smile' and Crafting with Dragonflies 'Summer Fun' challenges.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamps: Bugaboo pre-coloured 'Pup Summer' digi, 'From the Heart' sentiment stamps (magazine freebie)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Ovals Small, Classic Scalloped Ovals Small, Spellbinders Borderabilities Curved Borders One, Anchor (magazine freebie)
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Punch: Small hole punch
Ink: Memento Paris Dusk
Card: Dark blue matt
Paper: Emma Ball papers (magazine freebie)

I layered blue paper onto dark blue card and attached it to the card front.  I cut a curved border in a piece of  sand coloured paper, stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner and attached it to the lower part of the card.  I resized the pre-coloured digi and printed it onto white card before die cutting and embossing it.  This was then layered onto a die cut scalloped oval and attached to the card front.  I die cut an anchor from blue card and attached it above the sentiment.  To finish I punched six small circles, curved them with a ball tool and then attached them to the card.

A fun card - remember getting to the end of the day with a red ring around your tummy from swinging those cane hula hoops around all day long? No? Perhaps you are too young! I know he is going swimming but it just reminded me of some other summer time fun. Hope those floaties keep him up! Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at Crafting with Dragonflies.
