CDS Sneak Peek - Charlie Summer Fun

It's day 3 of the CDStamps Sneak Peeks and today I have 2 cards to share with you (I will post the other a little later in the day). Charlie is back and he is ready for some summer fun at the beach of course! He is donning his inner tube and hoping to catch a wave or two!

He has been watercoloured with bright colours for safety in the water and has been paper toled to come to life. The gorgeous beach has been sponged on with various inks and all he needs is for his friends to arrive! And what kind of beach would this be if it didn't have shells I might ask? Lucky for Charlie, his shells are shell buttons that coordinate with his background! *grin*

This sweet card is made with the new Charlie Summer Fun set that will be available on July 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps. Would you believe that that card contains no ribbon or fibers? It was was of the CDS DT Challenges that we were given, so who was I to argue? These buttons are threaded with very fine strips of paper! I managed to slice some fine pieces with my craft knife, ruler and mat :o)

Lori McCrosky has a picture of what the entire set looks like on her blog, you just have to scroll down to see it :) Be sure to hop around and check out the links below to see what the girls have come up with to show you and pop back in for a peek at my Rosebud Castle card.
