Beach Time

It is a really warm one here in Iowa today so it would be a great day for the beach - but, Iowa and beaches don't really go together.  I made this fun shaped card today using the digital set from Doodle Pantry called Mini Summer Trio.  I used the lifesaver the other day now the shovel.  I use Microsoft Word to play with my digital images.  I enlarged the shovel to almost 5 1/2 inches tall.  I printed it on the sunburst paper.  I then flipped the image and printed it on heavy white cardstock.  I folded the white cardstock in the middle of the handle as you can see below.  So you can write your message on the inside of the large part of the shovel. 
The sentiment is also from the set and is being held on by a star paper clip.  I used the Copic marker YR18 to highlight what I was thinking would be the shadowed edges of the shovel.  This was so quick and easy to make. 
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons - Don't be square
Fab 'n' Funky - Shaped card
Cards in Envy - Fun in the sun
My Craft Spot - Fancy edges
Perfectly Rustic - Sunburts
