Summer is here and although we have beautiful weather here in Hawaii year-round, I still think of hanging out at the beach during summer vacation. Now that my oldest son is in school, I can appreciate the summer vacation again, when all we had to think about was which beach were going to check out that day.
This card was supposed to be for a challenge two weeks ago that I really love. One of the best color challenges around comes from Kristina Werner and her blog. Like I mentioned, this was her latest color inspiration challenge and I kept telling myself "Post it & be done already!" But sometimes I can be quite a procrastinator (OK, most of the time. Hee hee) Better late than never right?

It is hard to see but the little boy and sand castle are heat embossed and the little boys was stamped once on the original image and once on a scrap piece of paper, colored, embossed, then cut out and layered on top of the original for some dimension!
