Hang Ten Dude card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas
Here's my take on the challenge.  I took my inspiration from the surfboards in the photo and -made a fun, summery surfing themed card using stamps from The Cat's Pajamas.  I colored up the surfing big-eared bunny from the Stoked stamp set using Copic markers.  To go with the bunny, I made a sea/sky background on a round panel with a pale blue sky and a darker blue stitched wave along the bottom. The bunny was adhered to the panel using foam tape.

To go with the whimsical bunny image, I adhered a strip of blue dotted paper edged with a narrow strip of orange cardstock to a pale blue cardfront.  I matted the image panel on an orange circle, then added it on top.  It was accented it with a die cut shimmery white cloud. The set's "hang ten, dude" sentiment was curved on my clear block to match the shape of the round panel, then stamped along the panel's edge in black ink.
