Theme: Summer Beaches
I have to admit that at first this challenge was giving me all sorts of trouble! Although I know that the color in the photo is pink, all I could think about when I looked at the inspiration photo was Fourth of July and that didn't go with the theme! So I went through my stash and found some pattern papers I liked that I thought went well with the photo and grabbed a picture of Marilyn Monroe on the beach that I had printed from the Internet and got to creating.
Here is what I came up with....
To imitate the banner in the photo I cut and adhered white pattern paper flags to card. I did some stitching using my sewing machine and added some vintage buttons for added interest.
It's funny how I found the challenge difficult at first but in the end came out with a card I am totally happy with!
I hope you will share your projects for this challenge with us! Post your entries over at Papercraft Star by 6:00 AM EST Monday July 25th. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
