Progressive Challenge Play!

Hi Everyone!  I did manage to find a few minutes this afternoon to do some crafting so I am back with my second post today with a card I have created for no other reason than to play.  Over the weekend I signed up to play along with the current progressive challenge happening over at The Crafters Digital Art Centre (CDAC).



The image I am using is the first provided freebie digi for their progressive challenge and is from Tiffany Doodles.

Original Digital Stamps

I have paper pieced the surf boards and colored the sand with my Tria Markers. I have then cut this out and layered over two strips of teal colored cardstock which I have cut with my decorative scissors to look like waves.  I have highlighted the crest of the waves with my white gel pen.  A couple of shell brads from the Eyelet Outlet and my sentiment from Unity Stamp Co finish this off.   My card base is a ribbed cardstock purchased from Time to Create my Local Scrapbooking Store. My card is representing how I am feeling today as being the first days of Spring and September it means that my birthday is just around the corner and as always we are planning to go away for a few days.  The Beach is our favorite Destination for a short escape!  So whether it be The Beach, my Birthday or simply Summer I am counting the days! 

In creating this card I am also playing along with the following challenges:

Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Paper Piecing (both the papers I have used for the surf boards and the seashell brads are older than two years old).
Crafty Creations Challenges - #185 A Summer Scene
The Perfect Sentiment - #PSC47 Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Dream Valley Challenges - #40 Something Old/Something New (Old papers and brads, new digi only received today)
Pan Pastels UK Challenges - #34 All About Stripes (Striped Paper on Surf Board and Ribbed Cardstock is striped)
