Going surfin...with The Outlawz

Good morning friends,
Hope you all had a great weekend. Here in South Africa we had a holiday on Friday, so a lovely long weekend. The weather was rather cold, chilly and even a bit wet, so not  great for being outdoors, but we had a bit of family time, went to see a musical...Starlight Express and spent time being creative..so for me a good weekend.

For the colour challenge  at The Outlawz this week it was my turn to choose the colours and inspirational photo, and the twist is to add polka dots.

My card  is made with an image from our sponsor  Digistamps4Joy, called 'Alex the Surfer' and can be found HERE. DS4J is sponsoring the challenges this month.

Here is what I used:
Paper ...Paper pad by Cart-us
Image ...coloured with Distress inks. I added glossy accents to his glasses. Cut it  with a Nestability  die.
Added 3 buttons.
Sentiment...Computer generated.

Will enter the following challenges:
Pile it on challenge #32...Outdoors
One stitch at a time #176...Use a digi
Here come the boys #58...Only squares
A Gem of a Challenge #92...Summer
Drunken Stampers #136...Beach
Crafty Cardmakers challenge #97...1,2,3.. 1 image,2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments

Wishing you all a great creative week. Will be back soon.
Love Ursula
