Beach Babes at Phindys Place

Hi everyone, its Friday again and that means another challenge over at Phindys Place and this week the theme is 
Beach Babes
For my card I have used the sweet Summer Bare and coloured her with copics.
I was inspired by this fab Sunburst Easter Card a while ago and wanted to have a go myself.
I thought this card was the perfect opportunity and also got to use up some scraps.
You can even download a template for the sunburst here so how fab is that!!
I also decided to stitch round the rays for additional texture and I really love the effect!!
The butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch.





So why not come and join in this fun challenge, you dont need to use a Phindy Image but we love it when you do!!!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Punch Drunk (butterfly is a punch)
Divas by Design - Summer
Paper Pretties - Summer
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
