Stephanie's Card

I started with a 4x5 1/2 piece of card.  I used a mask to create the sun then used the negative of that mask to cover the sun while I sponged the sky.  Post it notes helped me to create the horizon line where the sky and sea meet.  Next I used a stamp set from Flourishes(no longer in business) to stamp the palm trees, clouds and boat.  Colored them with colored pencils the sponged some sand on the bottom.  Next I cut a Lucy Label from Karen Burniston.  I used it as a template so I could cut my sponged and stamped panel so that it would fit over the pop up parts. After the top piece was in place I sponged the bottom panel to look like sand.  I used toothpicks on the IO umbrellas and secured them to the back of the label,  The table and chairs is a sticker from Jolee.  You can't see them in the picture but there are some IO sand castles behind the table. I finished the bottom with a Happy Birthday from Cheery Lynn and another stamp from flourishes and some IO flip flops. The front of the card was done awhile back for another challenge. I won't lie this card took about three hours to do, but I like how it came out.
