A special card

Today when I sat down to make this card, I set a couple of goals for myself.
Firstly, I wanted to draw my own image.
Secondly, I wanted to write the sentiment,  and finally keep it CAS.
This card has pushed me out of my comfort zone, and surprisingly I like how this card has come out.
I drew and colored the umbrella and the beach chair...yay I managed!
Drew a circle and I cut it with scissors, no big shot used for this.
Sponged light and dark blue ink for the scene, even though it is pretty hard to tell if I had used two inks ;) and distressed the edges with orange ink.
I wrote the sentiment with black fine tip pen, and colored with a turquoise gel pen. 'Enjoy' is the main word of the sentiment, made some sun rays around the dot of 'i', and colored in a tiny drink plus straw in the 'y'. Continued from the 'y' here to the rest of the sentiment.
That's it. Managed to do a card as desired!


Linking this card for the following:


CASE Study, My blog is just over 2 months, and this will be my first time entering for a DT spot, 
I am CASing Valita's work here, it was this card of hers, which got me into sponging, and there is no looking back since then, I am addicted to sponging now.

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
