Beach Challenge

Well a busy day today. Started with some tennis with the husband.  We tried the new drill from Tuesday, and unfortunately, I was a bit off the mark today.  Not my best showing...oh well. There's always next week :)  At least the work out was FitBit recorded 2 hours and 10 minutes...with over 1 hour 10 in cardio!!!

Less is More has a Beach Challenge.  I'm excited about this one because I love my newest stamp set from My Favorite Things, which is perfect for this challenge.

Okay I know this looks like lots of layers, but in fact it is only one.  I created this entire card with the inlaid die technique.  So in fact, it is only one layer.  This is the first time I used this technique with the entire card and was quite surprised at how easy it was to create.

Basically, I cut out each of the elements with my Cuddlebug.  I colored the penguin and the tree with Copic markers.  I used a bit of distressed ink for the sky and sand and then put them together like a puzzle.

Actually it was quite simple.  My favorite part of the card is tummy of the penguin---I gave him a light sunburn ;)
