Surf's Up

Hi all,

I decided to throw in for a few challenges this week...I used one of the past freebies from Some Odd Girl - Hang 10 Kody! 

Allsorts Challenge #65: Paper Piercing
Craft Your Passion #19: Anything Goes
Lili of the Valley #60: Four Seasons (Summer!)
OLLCB #60: Spots and Dots
Simon Says: Summer with Blue

My card base is Whisper White, and I added some bursts of paper piercing to each corner.  The rectangle panel is a Basic Black mat, with So Saffron (embossed with the Shell Collage folder) and Brocade Blue CS (embossed with the Swiss Dots folder).  I draped some black grosgrain ribbon around the seam of that layer.

Kody is printed onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured with Copics, and cut out with Label 4 Nesties.  I added some black pearls to the left side as well.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
