Life's A Beach

Hello friends.  I have a new card to share.

This little cutie is called Summer Butterfly Bear - Beach and she's from Bugaboo Stamps.  Isn't she adorable in her little polka-dot swimsuit?  She's got her beach towel, beach ball and sparkly sandles.  What more could a butterfly bear need for a relaxing day at the beach?  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and then added Glossy Accents to her antennae, nose, the beach ball, and the dots on her swimsuit.  I added some stickles to her wings and her sandles.  The little yellow polka-dot circle with the button is suppose to look like the sun, but I'm not sure how well that worked lol!  I used some twine (I love that stuff!) and a little fish-shaped button that I've had in my stash for years. 

Thank you for stopping by.
