It Ain't Summer Til.....

Today is officially the first day of summer! My card today features a couple of fun summer themed images from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. 

For my post today, I made a fun summer themed side step card. I tried to add some real sand that a friend brought back from the Dominican for me but I couldn't find a way to get it to stick properly. There is a story behind that sand including getting stopped and searched at the airport but I will share that story when I successfully find a way to use it on a card  

For now... "Beach Girl Patti" - she sure looks like she is ready to dive into the water and do some snorkeling doesn't she?! 

After cutting out my side step card base I coloured and fussy cut my stamps. I added some glossy accents to Patti's goggles but it is kinda hard to see in the photo. Some matching blue cardstock was cut size and a wave border die was the perfect touch for my waves. 
I ran a black marker around the edges of these pieces too just to give them a bit more definition. I added some fish just for fun since Patti is going snorkeling I'm sure she'll see some! 
The sentiment was stamped on some matching patterned paper and voila!
