Surf's up!

Good morning, it's our last challenge at Crafty Catz before the summer break, after this we'll be back in September. It's my turn to host this week, I picked the optional theme of  'on the beach'. Our sponsor for this week is the one and only Bugaboo...yay!!!
I used the Surfing Guy image...such a cool dude! The letters behind him are hand cut from dp I've hoarded ( and drooled over) for was REALLY hard to make myself cut it up but it does look like surf! Embossed background and stamped heat embossed sentiments. The surfer is coloured with copics, fussy cut and popped up on foam pads. 
Thanks for stopping by-
have a fabulous day!

This is an awesome card Chris. I love how you made your letters and I know how hare it is to make that first cut in some papers. I still got some papers I bought ages ago (like 14 years ago) that I still love but can´t get myself to use them... lol. One day maybe

Have a great weekend!
Hugs Nick

Me again, but there again, it's you again. Another brilliant image. That background sentiment is just fabulous and I can see why you hung onto it but it is certainly perfect for this great image. Another wonderful creation.

Wow this is just brilliant. It would go down a treat with my son who is a keen surfer. I think I used that image for him one year.
