Just Us Girls #91 sketch....You're a lifesaver

Hey Just Us Girls fans.  Time for our first challenge in July...can you believe July has already begun?  This week is a sketch from Kathryn.  You are gonna love this one...


I tapped my stash of Cosmo Cricket  Elements from the Snorkel collection.  So many cute images in this set.  I decided the "lifesaver" element  would be a fun way to say thanks to someone and also, that I could replicate the simple design of the life ring onto my card to represent the circle in our sketch. 


I had fun trimming myself an ocean wave strip and stringing my thanks mini tag like a tow line from the ring.  Couldn't resist adding some turquoise bling from Want2Scrap for a little shimmer on the ocean waves.

The water was sparkling as blue as the bling for real today as the girls and I hit the beach for some fun with friends ....  I love summer!
