NND--Enjoy the Day

Today's card features Newton watching a sunrise over the Atlantic awaiting a day of fun at the beach OR relaxing after a day of fun and watching a sunset over the Pacific.  To make this card, I sketched the scene and then water colored it.  I traced it in black gel pen. I wasn't totally thrilled, so I used a sparkly gel pen over the waves and sunset to add a bit of glimmer.  For the clouds, I retraced with a white gel pen to soften the black.  For Newton and his beach accessories, I stamped and fussy cut.  Then shaded with Spectrum Noir markers. I stamped the sentiment and attached the sequins and my fussy cuts.  I punched the corners of the blue card stock and adhered my scene.  At last I attached everything to the base.  So no matter if this is a sunset or sunrise, Newton is having the time of his life at the beach!
