Hi everyone and welcome back to another Linky Party. It's summer and the sun is shining so what better theme could there be than "Beach"? To create my card I stamped the cute bear image from "Gotta Wear Shades" on mix media paper and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

 I wanted to create a clean and simple card with a lot of white space so I decided to die cut a scalloped circle frame using the "Stitched in Circle"die set. Using the smaller circle, I also die cut the circle from blue card stock and used my cutting machine to cut out waves. I adhered everything to a square top-folding notecard and placed the bear in the center of the frame. 

Using the Flag Banner dies I die cut a smaller flag from black card stock and heat embossed the sentiment "A splashing good time" with white embossing powder and adhered it to the frame. For some embellishment I stamped a few flowers from the "Island Paradise" set and colored them also with Zig markers and adhered them to the flag banner. For a finishing touch, I applied some glossy accents to the sunglasses of the bear.

I hope you enjoyed my card for the "Beach" Linky Party. I am looking forward to seeing your creations on the blog.

Here are all the CDD products I used:
