Sparkles & Sunshine

These mice are relaxing on a nice sandy beach under the warm sun. Oh happy day!

I colored with Copic markers. Shaded around image panel with distress inks. The partial sun/sunrays I sponged distress inks with a stencil then added crystal glitter. The beautiful piece of designer paper (thank you America!!!) I added glitter accents to the sun and rays. I love how the white gel pen faux stitching added to the design! The nice are on a soft sandy beach -- created from FlowerSoft Ultrafine Sand. LOVE! I just recently added the most awesome sequins to my craft stash. Lawn Fawn -- Hello Sunshine Mixed. I just LOVE looking at it in the package!'s that awesome! The Mermaid cardstock is from A Muse Studio. It's one of my favorite colors. I swear I used it on like every card I make. And it's white on the back! Perfect for makin' cards.

That's it for today. Hope you'll join us for this challenge. You have 2 weeks...but don't wait till the last minute. You know how that goes...

 Thanks for stoppin' by!
