If there's a single flower that makes me think of warm sunny beaches, surfing and summer, it's the hibiscus flower, and Claire has the sweetest stamp featuring this flower. I used it to stamp some flowers on to my card base. I used a few of the papers to make the layers and finished by stamping a birthday sentiment. Kathryn really likes this card - so I think it's okay for a girl. Here's my surfer girl themed birthday card.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy, Teeny Trees
Inks: Memento - Love Letter
Accessories: Paper - Fancy Pants Designs - Beach Babe (Free with Cardmaking & Papercraft); SU Pen - Daffodil Delight; Card from stash
There are quite a few beach/summer/vacation challenges about at the moment, so I'm submitting it to the following challenges:
- Paper Pretties Monday Challenge - PPMC47 - Beach Days
- Cardmadfairy's Challenge - CMFC37 - Summertime
- Simply Create Too - SCT17 - Summer/Vacation
- Totally Papercrafts Friday Challenge - TPFC124 - Here Comes Summer
And my card is also just right for our St Luke's Charity Card Challenge - Teenage Kicks - to make a card for a teenager and, as this has passed the Kathryn test, I think it counts. I decorated the envelope with this pretty die-cut hibiscus flower (I had planned to use the flower on the card, but it just wouldn't work). There's still plenty of time to join in the fun! Here are the challenge graphics:
