Whimsy and Stars Studio - Amelie to the Beach

I am honored that Mabelle invited me to be a Guest Designer for her Whimsy and Stars Studio and to make a project with her new digi design Amelie to the Beach.  

I made a summer card using Hip Hop patterned cardstock by Red Rubber Designs for the background.  The image is printed and then cut out using Spellbinder's Labels Eight and the star (sun) from Spellbinder's Scalloped Edge Frame.  

I created sand for her bucket, shovel and the beach using Flower Soft Toffee.  Then I added buttons with Scrappers' Floss for accent.

Here is a close up of the sand.

Thank you, Mabelle, for asking me to create with your cute image of Amelie to the Beach.  It was so much fun to color and design a card using this image. 

Check out all of Mabelle's images at Whimsy and Stars Studio. And see some wonderful cards by her Design Team on the Whimsy and Stars Studio Blog.
