This is for Mary's Dare to Get Dirty challenge as well as Sabrina's "Beach Party" challenge. Also combined with the Tiddly Inks Clean and Simple Challenge. I've had this sweet digi for awhile and hadn't used her yet. I thought she would be fun with this birthday sentiment that cracks me up. I have a coworker with a birthday coming up who will really love this card. I tried the sanded pencils background that Sabrina suggested, but it didn't work out great since I had the wrong colored pencils. I tried to use watercolor crayons, but they didn't work either.
Please come join us to find out the details of this fun challenge!

That's another image I love and she looks fab in her navy and white. I actually grabbed a quick paddle in the sea whilst wearing a dress when I went for a walk on my own whilst in Devon - shorts are far more practical!

She is ADORABLE! I love the stripes, although I wear more polka dots myself. I'm nodding at Janine's comment above although actually I think the opposite. I can tuck my blue and white polka-dot summer dress right up into my underpants and paddle in deeper water than DH in his shorts. But neither of us could make it across the little river that separated one beach from another on our holidays this summer - we always had to walk the long way round.
If the sky is your sanded pencils, I think it looks beautiful. Reminds me of a treasured Basic Grey paper. I usually just use the technique as background fill with stencils, it's the first time I've made it more of a feature.

I agree with Sabrina: the subtle color variations in the sky are perfect. I'm not fond of the beach so I can't identify with "beachy" cards, but I can definitely identify with this all-too-true sentiment! TFS!
