Card Chain Challenge Reveal

 I always try to join in the Card Chain Challenge (CCC) as it's so much fun to receive something in the mail!  You still have time to join in CCC for May.  The sign-up deadline is May 6th.  All entries will be revealed at CCC on the 2nd of June.  

I chose the challenge of using die-cuts and I used lots of them for this summer "Fun in the Sun" card.  Maybe April was too soon to think of summer, but I couldn't stop thinking summer!

As you can see, there were a number of ways to challenge yourself to create a card to send by snail mail.  

I am still on a "slimline High", so to speak.  I've pre-sponged panels and die-cut them for future uses.  While I'm inky, I like to work on more than one project or image.  I thought this Distress Oxide mix of colors was perfect for a beach scene of sun, palm trees and beach related paraphernalia  Having dies made for slimline cards saves a lot of time in trying to adapt other dies and gives a great finished appearance to a card.
