Going to the beach?

Well - that's what I want to do again - after having such wonderful weekend - but now it's time to spend the day in the office again. Can't get too tanned of course ;-)

Anyway - Jodi is hosting our challenge over at RoP this time. She want us to make a Gate Fold Card with sewn, hand or faux stitching. I have not done a Gate Fold Card in ages. Why is that? They are so fun to make - but I guess it takes time to keep up with all the new things going on in the crafting world - that we tend to forget what we we learned being new to this wonderful hobby.

I decided to colour this cute little beach Anya from the stamp set Rain, Snow, Shine. I was lucky to get this one stamped from my sweet and talented friend Tammi - thank you dear! Summer has these stamps in store now - so guess what I will be ordering ;-)

I coloured my cool beach Anya with my copics. Used the Basic Grey "Lime Ricky" for my DP.

Added some Prima flowers and spacers. Used my SU slot punch so that I easily could tie the ribbon from SU.

Here's what the card looks like - half open. As you can see - I used the matching DPs on the inside of the card as weI hope you like it. Please pop over to our RoP challenge site and join us. Also - remember - you have until tomorrow - June 30th to apply to be one of the Guest DTs for

Kram - Anki
