Clean & Simple Summer Fun

StampFairy are sponsoring Sketch & Stash, and I've made a card to support the challenge.  This one features my favourite bear (yup, Barry is here again) but he's on the beach today, building sandcastles in the sun (well it is meant to be summer after all!).

I've painted him with by Distress Reinkers, and coloured the sun in Sakura Stardust Gel pen to give it some sparkle.  I've hand stitched some cross stitch onto the edges of the panels and looped some yellow ribbon on the sides.

I'm not usually a fan of orange, (although I LOVE orange roses - how does that figure!) but I quite like these papers, so that's helped to give it a Summer Fun theme.

Here's the sketch, with the added twist of 'summer fun'.
