Setting the Scene with Fantabulous Cricut

Good day all.  Hope you have had a relaxing weekend...maybe at the beach...
Challenge #169 at Fantabulous Cricut is Set the Scene! Create a mini scene on your project. Make sure you use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project. I decided that a summer beach theme would work well for this challenge and staring at this pile of left over paper on my craft desk made it happen.
I grabbed the sandy looking craft paper and some blue and using my Fiskars edger and a Dew Drop ink I made my mini beaches.
After creating the base for the cards I selected a few images from the Life is a Beach cartridge to create each "scene". Rather then cut the layers on both chairs I used a colored pencil to go over the lines in both.
The final touch were the stamps from the Pink By Design, Summer Vacation set.

I hope you can join us for this week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut. Make sure to head over to see what the other Design Team members have created for you as inspiration.
