Happy Beach-Day!

Hello and Happy Friday!  It's time for another Your Next Stamp Fun Friday challenge.   In case you missed the announcement, the Your Next Stamp challenge blog is back and we have a great sketch/inspiration challenge for you each month.  You have all month to play along and Karen is offering up a prize AND a chance to be a Guest Designer!!  Pop on over to the YNS Challenge blog to see this month's challenge and how you can play along to win.

So my card today was based on this month's sketch.  I have a little sneak peek at one of the new June release stamps for Austin.  He's all ready for some summer fun!  I stepped outside my comfort zone when colouring his skin and gave him a lovely tan.  I'm actually quite pleased how he turned out and I'll have to start using different skin tones again soon.  Behind my image you'll see a fancy orange frame.   That is also one of the new dies releasing tomorrow. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and come on back tomorrow to see more more June releases and to join us on the new release blog hop!
