Beach Babes

It’s Anything Goes at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

I’ve used the darling little Beach Babes  from Digi Doodle Shop and coloured them with Soft Pastel Pencils.I’ve wanted to make a Center Step Card for a while and thought this image would sit nicely on it.I dug out some lovely seashell paper from K & Co to go with them.The sentiment is a freebie from the Sentiments/Word Art section at the store.This is from the Sentiments for Summer set and I’ve shaded around the edges with more pastel pencil.I’ve added some coordinating pearls and baker’s twine.The pearl charm is actually from a set of underwear I bought (cut off BEFORE I wore it I hasten to add!).I thought it was far too bulky and would show through my clothes so I put it to a much better purpose!
