   This card is for my step daughter who has three girls. I can just imagine them all lying on the beach under a parasol.
   I mattered and layered the design paper, which was printed using Joanna Sheen's House Mouse CD ROM, onto black and then white card. The image, stamped using one of the stamps from Joanna Sheen's summer House Mouse set was coloured using Promarkers. I cut it out using a Spellbinders scalloped circle die and then matted it onto black card which was cut out by hand following the contours of the die cut image. I finished the card with a peel off sentiment, card candi and a handmade card bow.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

This card turned out so cute and I love how it reminded you of your step daughter's three girls sprawled out on the beach enjoying the sun! For that matter, it made ME want to go out and enjoy the sun, too! I really like the summery color palette you chose and thought the addition of the parasols was so unique. Great use of images and great use of digital products! Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
