Challenge Friday

Good morning everyone!! I stayed up pretty late last night....I was stamping away and didn't look at the time until it was after two...yikes!!! I just left my mess till later in the morning...maybe the good fairy will clean it up while I get my beauty rest...LOL!!!
I made this fun card for the Free 4 All Challenge on Splitcoast...we were to be inspired by the sun. The temp was in the 80's here yesterday so I was ready to get out the summer stamps!! The sweet image from Penny Black's Beach Day set from Stamper's Dream was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, embossed with clear ep, and watercolored with Tombow Markers. The sun, sentiment, and shells at the bottom are from the same set. My poor little girl is all sunburned...I guess she forgot to use sunscreen!!!
