But back to the matter at hand. This card is for the Off The Wall Craftiness challenge #57, which is to make a "beachy" card. Additionally, it is for this week's Magical Monday Callenge at There's Magic In the Air -- this week's challenge is a sketch, which I had to tweak just a bit to fit my image.
That cute image is a free digi I picked up a while back, but I'm pretty sure it's Hambo. Colored with pencils and OMS. There's some Martha Stewart baker's twine wrapped around the edge of image, and the chipboard sentiment is from an old pack by Colorbok. Patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.
Take it easy in the heat!

The flowers and leaves are from an SU set, and I've lost track of where the bee is from (probably a grab bag of some sort or another). I arranged them close to how they appear on the teapot and colored with pencils. The yellow layer went thru the Cuttlebug with the Swiss dot folder, and since the bottom of the card "needed something," it got half pearls.
The ribbon came from Mike's a few years ago -- it was among the Christmas clearance ribbon, and I was grabbing anything that didn't look "too Christmasy."
The Victorine Stamps challenge is back, and this card is for Challenge #12 -- using flowers.
