The Paper Players PP548 Challenge is Stars and/or Stripes and I thought that since the 4th of July is now in the past I would do summery stripes on my card. Relaxing right?

Products used:

Dog in pool - Hero Arts "Lounging Pups"
Sentiment: Honey Bee "Sea Breeze"
Dies: My Favorite Things "Beach Scene Builder"
Ink: Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink,  Stampin' Up! Coastal Cabana
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up!
Ink Blending brushes
Glossy Accents
Prismacolor Colored Pencils

The Card Concept #158 is also a beachy theme and I couldn't resist playing along. My card is clean and layered and uses the colors in the beachy photo for the challenge. I could feel the beach/sea and surf like the mugs in the photo as well as the shades of aqua!

Hope you are enjoying summer  R & R!!!
