Drunken Stampers #136 - Place: A Beach

Good Morning and happy Saturday to you! It's time again for another challenge at Drunken Stampers! For this term, the challenges will be either a person, a place, or a thing, and will alternate each week! How cool is that?!! You can create a project using the main objective, or the sub title, or go bold and use BOTH! HA! This week's challenge is a Place: A Beach, with the option to use water/the beach/tropics as your theme.

Team Tropical Hooters (Love that name! Our team names are based on drink names! LOL!) is up to bat this week to amaze you with their crafty genius! Here is what I came up with:

Here is the inside:

This was such a fun challenge to create for. Mainly because the beach IS my Happy Place! There's nothing more relaxing than parking your butt in a beach chair with the sun on your face, the smell of the salty breeze and suntan lotion, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, and a cold drink in your hand! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

I wanted to create a scene for my card, and since I have a ton of beach themed stickers, I went to town using them! The background panel was made with scraps of blue card stock and two different patterned papers to mimic sky, ocean, and sand. After those were adhered, I just picked a bunch of dimensional stickers to make the scene. Even though the umbrella already was sticky on the back, I only adhered the pole directly to the back panel, but used foam dots on the umbrella. (I wanted the top of the chair to fit under the umbrella.)  I die cut some clouds and adhered, and stamped the sentiment. Finished the inside with another sentiment and a pair of sunglasses and I was done!

I hope you have the chance to play along with the Drunken Stampers this week! Oh, and don't forget to check out what my Tropical Hooters teammates came up with! You won't be disappointed!!
