Designer's Choice Challenge at Repeat Impressions

Hi blog friends! 
Can you believe it, we're celebrating the first day of  SUMMER??!!!  Who isn't ready for a few months of warmth and sunshine, barbeques and beach time?  I know I am.
Today we're having a Designer's Choice Challenge at The House That Stamps Built and it's my turn to challenge you.  So my challenge is for you to HEAD TO THE BEACH.  Since it's summer and since the beach is such an important place for relaxation and summertime fun, I challenge you to create a card with a beach theme. 

Here's the card I made to get us started.  I used RI Stamp #4503-K "Beach Time" as my focal image.  The sentiment is # 9003 which BTW is this week's STAMP OF THE WEEK (Members of The House That Stamps Built blog can get it for 50% off the retail price) and the balloons are #9116 from the fabulous new "Big Boys Toys" set. 

My card base was die cut with Spellbinder Label 8, then masked and sponged with Memento inks, "Summer Sky", "Blue Danube" and "Desert Sand".  The clouds were die cut using Memory Box "Puffy Clouds" dies.  The sweet little beach bunny was stamped separately and cut with Spellbinder ovals then was colored with Copic Markers.  Finally, before adhering the oval image to the card based with pop dots, I sponged the edges with the same colors as their background. 

I hope you'll all join in and play along with my "Head to the Beach" Designer's Choice Challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  

Here are some more fabulous "Head for the Beach" inspiration ideas from the RI Rock Stars

I love this "beach time" stamp, and if you come back this weekend, you'll see I've used it again for another card I created for another DT I'm on at Outlawz for their big celebration.  Get more information by clicking on the flashing flags in the upper left hand corner of my blog.  BTW - REPEAT IMPRESSIONS will be sponsoring a big prize for one of the challenges at Outlawz for their Where in the World Celebration Party. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you'll play along with our challenge at The House That Stamps Built.
