Beach Bum

HAPPY 4th OF JULY to all my US friends!  

This week I played along with the sketch challenge from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps challenge blog - The Sweet Stop.    I didn't go with a 4th of July theme for my card but did go with a summer theme.  I used the beach bucket image with Cocoa from the Beach Bum set.  Along with that great image I paired it with some new DCWV papers called A Type of Art.

Here is the sketch:

Here is what I did:

I paper pieced the bucket and added glitter to his ears, isn't he the cutest?  I've been having fun with the Sweet n' Sassy images lately!  Get ready because in just a few weeks July 19th they are having a fun Christmas in July blog hop and friends are invited to link up!  

Have a safe and happy fourth!

Till later!

Cocoa at the beach is adorable! Love the colors and papers. The paper pieced bucket and sparkly ears are wonderful accents on your cute, cute card! Thanks so much for playing along with the Sweet Stop sketch this week, Maria!

What a darling Cocoa card Maria. The paper-piecing looks great. Thank you for playing along with us at The Sweet Stop this week.
