Lazy Days of Summer

 I have challenged myself to try to make more CAS cards.  So, I saw this challenge at Guylou's Inimitability to make a card using CAS and Kraft.  Here is what I came up with:
  I printed the image on Cryogen White cardstock, colored it with Copic Markers and used an 'Out of the Box' technique for cutting it out with a nestability. I added a UFO TJ background strip that is shimmery green and turquoise- thought that resembled water......I ran it thru the Big Shot with a swirly pattern.
  I added some brown highlights to the Kraft to look like sand. The clouds are Memory Box dies and I have a pile of them sitting on my desk. 
 The sentiment is from Create with TLC- I cut it apart so it would fit across the bottom.

Challenges:
Guylou's- CAS and Kraft
Celebrate the Occasion- Welcome Summer

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh I love what you have done to make the kraft look sandy. Great job!

I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment on my marker wallet. I am beyond thrilled that you like it, as it was so much fun to make and I was excited for the feedback. Best of luck in Krista's drawing. Wishing you a Frilly Frou Frou day, Holly
