Hello Swimming Pool Boy

If you're looking for my Candy, click here.  I'm a new blogger trying for 50 followers.

This card is for my young nephew, so I wanted to keep it pretty CAS with not a lot of embellishments since it's for a boy.  I love this cute image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps - he's in his little pool, but he wants to be at the beach!  I started by covering a white card base with DP.  I stamped the sentiment on a purple scrap and mounted at the top.  I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils, mounted on purple cardstock, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  Lastly I embellished with a shell charm tied with metallic thread.

Wonderful coloring. My daughter gave me Prismacolor pencil colors & I use crayola also. The DP background paper looks like pool water and the charm is a nice added touch.
