A babe on the beach!

Well, I'm back again - and it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz!  And this week our lovely Jac has challenged us to come up with some 'fancy folds' - so we want to see some varied card designs!
And we're sponsored this week by Alota stamps!

For my card I've used a fabulous digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called 'Little Umbrella'

Oh, I just love that attitude - she makes me smile every time I look at her!  I've coloured the image with a mix of copics and promarkers

It'd be nice if the weather was like that this weekend - although I still wouldn't be baring all in an Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Bikini!  
The papers were freebies with a magazine and thought the spots and stripes fitted a 'beach' theme quite well!  The sentiment stamp and ticket die are from Whimsy - with a fabulous Mae West quote!  The ribbon and gems are from stash. 

So do have a look at the fantastic inspiration from the DT over at CraftyCatz and then join us in the challenge! 
Hope you have a great weekend - bikini or not! Back soon,
Kim x
