Spotlight on BLD Beachboy Cole!

(Please scroll down for my Sparkles Creations Rubber Stamps and TLT DT posts!)

I know, I know, how many cards can a gal make in such a short amount of time?!  Four it seems!  Yes, this is my fourth post today so I hope you are all hanging in with me and not getting bored!

This post is to showcase Beachboy Cole from the new By LoRi Designs new release!  This is what I made with this uber cool guy...

 

I told you he was uber cool!  The bucket and spade also comes with him -the perfect accessories!!  I matched him up with papers from the new Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here) and I used thin cork to create a [sort of] sand effect.  You can't see it well from the photo, but I stamped the cream card with a Hero Arts checked background and the sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Happy Thoughts set (from Dies to Die For here).

You can also see spotlights from the other DT here - you won't want to miss their sweet takes on Cole!


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Bazzill Bling cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here, currently with 10% off)
Stamps: By LoRi Designs Beach Boy Cole, My Favorite Things Happy Thoughts set (from Dies to Die For here)
Mediums: Copics, Glossy Accents on sunglasses
Accents:
Dew Drops, clip from stash

Tools: My Favorite Things notebook edge die (from here) and jumbo scallop die (from here)
