Beach Fun - Jitterbuggin Sketch 8

Greetings from beautiful Edisto Beach, SC! I'm having a great time on vacation....and found the inspiration to make this fun card for Jitterbuggin' this week. Card is 5" square. The paper is from a DCWV summer stack...cut into 2 1/4" squares to follow the pattern. The center rectangle is embossed with the basket weave folder, trimmed out with red and orange ribbon, and edged with the pinking scissors. The cuts are from Life's a Beach....beach cut at 2 1/2" in yellow and orange....layered with pop dots. Cut the pelican from the title....layered him in white with more pop dots....and added silver metallic and black accents. The little crab is cut at 1"...detailed with a sharpie. Added some more ribbon and bright yellow buttons. Now doesn't this make you wish you were here???

Hop over to Jitterbuggin' Challenge and show me your beach creation.........you could win a new Sentimentals cartridge.

I'm also adding this card to the Polka Doodles summer themed challenge for this week. Wanna feel really summery??? Go over there and look at the fab DT creations!!
