Hello Sweetums Sand, Sun and Fun Birthday Card

See ya later, alligator! 🐊 Another birthday card I finished this week!
Let's see what I've done and what I've used!
The card and the background were made on 300 gsm white cardstock.

I blended the blue background with:
- Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide
- Salty Ocean Distress Oxide
- Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide

The waves were cut with Hello Sweetums' Water Waves Dies. 🌊 And it was blended with:
- Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide
- Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide
- Lucky Clover Distress Oxide

The sandy beach is actually a piece of patterned paper from Action. But the background was white so I used Scattered Straw Distress Oxide to make it more yellowish and less contrasted. Oh and the beach was cut with Hello Sweetums' Slippery Slopes Dies. ⛱️ The clouds were cut using Lawn Fawn's Simple Puffy Clouds. ☁️ And the alligator, sun and Palm tree are from Hello Sweetums' Sand, Sun and Fun stamps and dies. 🌴

The sentiment in the cloud is from Lawn Fawn: Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday.

The images were stamped using Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, and coloured using Copic markers.
