Wish Big On Your Birthday with the Lawn Fawn Summer Release!

Mama Bear and her cubs are enjoying a day at the beach.  They built a sand castle fit for a king!  That's the way I wanted my sand castles to turn out, but usually they ended up looking more like an ant hill.

The castle and beach are kraft cardstock colored with Copic markers.  The ocean waves were ink blended with the new Ocean Wave Stencils and Distress Oxide ink.  The bears are from various stamp sets (listed below) and stamped with Lawn Fawn's Crunchy Leaf ink, which is Copic friendly.
 This side view reveals that there's a surprise inside:
Again, I used Copic markers on kraft cardstock to create a sandy look on the Pop-up Wish Big, Scripty Birthday and card base.  The beach was embellished with images from the On the Beach stamp set.  The "on your" was stamped with Crunchy Leaf ink and is from Offset Sayings: Birthday.

I hope you are enjoying Lawn Fawn's June release!  Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog for great inspiration and your chance to win!
