Peachy Keen Challenge 47

Hello my Peachy Keen friends!
We had 97 participants for our last challenge!  Woohoo!!  You guys are awesome and oh so talented!  We appreciate each and everyone of you!!
So on to the the next challenge.  Here is the sketch.
Create a card or layout based on the SKETCH provided

Use bling of any kind to embellish your creation!

Design must be new
Project must incorporate elements from provided sketch and twist
Link up before March 21st

As with all of our sketch challenges, the basic layout should be there, but feel free to flip elements & get creative!

Here is what I came up with.

I used the adorable Lulee's Swim Time PK-780.  I love this stamp!  It's so cute, but then again, they all are!
I used An Ocean of Words for the waves and the life preserver.  I made the lifeguard chair with strips of white cardstock.  I googled lifeguard signs and printed an image I liked.  I used elements from the Fancy Brackets Rhinestone Silver W2S-01, for the waves, as well as a white gel pen.  I used several shades of brown markers to dot the sand.  I also had some small shell stamps that I used on the beach.  The clouds were sponged using a cardstock template that I cut out.  One of these days I will do a tutorial for making the sky background.  The finished card size is 5x7.

Be sure and head on over to the Peachy Keen Blog to see what my fellow team-mates have cooked up.  Fabulous work as always, sure to inspire!  I can't wait to see what you create using this wonderful sketch with a twist of bling!  Have FUN!!

One lucky random winner will receive a set of our Bunny Dolls! http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/product ... 394-0.html
