BBTB2 Challenge

I'm hoping to get several posts done today. I'm trying to push myself to be able to get more challenges done. I'm really bad about spending an entire day on one card and if I ever do start making and selling them like I plan to, I will need to learn to be a little faster sometimes! Anyway, this challenge was really fun. We were to use the flamingo from Life is a Beach, but were not supposed to make it pink!! I decided to use this wild patterned paper scrap that I had in my scrap box. I used the waves border from Life is a Beach and cut three of those. I used the sun from Doodlecharms and layered two of those on top of one another, inked the edges with red, then over top of that with a yellow. I hand cut the sand and the castle, pail, and shovel are a Cuttlebug die set. I inked the castle with brown and the pail and shovel were inked with red. I cut the cardstock for the sentiment with my trimmer and stamped the sentiment in red with a Recollections dollar stamp. I used Stickles on the flamingo's beak and legs and on the ocean waves.

Card recipe:
Cricut Life is a Beach
Cricut Doodlecharms
Cuttlebug Die Set
Recollections cardstock
Ink pads in red, yellow, brown and orange
