Beach Boy

Hiya!  It's a bit later in the day than my usual posting time, but I had a busy morning.  It's Fabulous Friday over at Tiddly Inks and we are showcasing some fabulous cards from the DT!  For my card, I've made a second entry into this weeks Feeling Sketchy challenge (I hope that's allowed) using Going Swimming (Boy).  He's just adorable and I have been dying to colour him up for ages.

Here's my card:



























































I just got these papers from Close-Out Girl on Etsy and the fabby beachy rubons and I was dying to use them.  I think they are from American Crafts.  The sentiment alphas are from October Afternoon.  I added Glossy Accents to his goggles.

Here's a close-up:




















and here are the copics I used:
















I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Feeling Sketchy: Sketch
Charisma Cardz: Male Cards
Delightful Challenges: For the boys

Okay, gotta run!  My husband and I are going for an overnight getaway tonight (taking advantage of a rare weekend off during the summer) to Loutraki.  We can't stay all weekend though as I've got too much DT stuff to do!

Ciao!
