Sitting on the Dock........

 
     .............and waiting, and waiting.  This was one of those cards that you can't get out of your head.  It uses lots of different elements, from different companies, but I think it came out cute in the end.

     Here is what I used:

Kraft base, embossed with Decorative Dots folder.
All Night Media wood grain stamp.
My dock image is from Art Impressions, and I do believe my sentiment is from River City.
The dies used are small sun from Lil Inkers, and the birds are from Impression Obsession.
I used whatever was on my sponges to create my background, and there is a bit of Copic coloring, and added touches of gel pen for foam.
The embellishments are bronze studs, and some hemp twine.

     I would like to enter this at Pixie's Snippets Playground #180, since I used bits of white card and a scrap of pearlized card to create my sun. 

     As per my friend Carol's suggestion, I am also going to enter this at the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge, called "Sunny".  This is a new one to me.  Thanks, Carol!
