Pool Fun!

SMC presents

The Sew Many Challenges Theme this week is ANYTHING GOES!

Sponsored by

Owner: Stitch

SPONSOR PRIZE PACKAGE -- 3 Free Digi stamps of winners choice from the Stitchy Bears Store

Here's my Anything Goes card:

I tried to create a pool scene with the use of some wave designer paper. Miki is cooling off while floating around on his inner tube!

I also had the joy of creating a card with a Stitchy Stamps image. Stitch provided me with the What's Cooking image. (THANK YOU, STITCH! YOU ARE AN AWESOME SPONSOR!!!) It was so much fun to color the What's Cooking image. I used some delicious designer papers for a yummy card!

I did some layering to give the card some dimension.
