Christian Paper Crafts Sweet Summertime - Sneak Peak!

Welcome!! It's my turn to share a little summer inspiration just for you! Each month the Design Team Delights feature a different theme and this month is Sweet Summertime.  So, here is my sweet summer sneak peak (that could qualify as a tongue twister!)  This is the last day of the sneak peeks and I hope you've been following along for the last few days at the CPC Creative Blog.(it's not to late to see the other sneak peeks!)  Tomorrow is the big reveal for our members!!  It's been a very productive month and there are soooo many cards, projects and just plain old sweet summer creative  inspiration for you!

Here is my card:

The papers were torn and distressed, then stickles added to the water edges (icicles color) and gold to the sand to give it a little glisten but it's not showing up in the picture.  Why gold? Have you ever heard of fools' gold.  We have it in some of the sand around the lakes in our area. A dot of Liquid Pearls was added to the "i" in "special".

I've cut out the pail and shovel and positioned them and then added dimensionals to adhere so it looks like Cole (our cute digital stamp) is carrying them.
