I created a fun scene using the super cool bunny from BEACH BLANKET BINGO. The stamp was coloured with Copics. The sand was created by separating the layers of a piece of kraft cardstock and using Distress Inks to highlight the texture. The wave is a sticker and the fun cloud paper is from Echo Park. The sentiment is included in the set.
