Comets at the Beach - Guest Designer J

I have a brand-new Guest Designer to introduce to you today.
He loves scrappy cards with lots of detail.  He loves to color
and add his own touch of cool to every project.
Meet J!
Here are a couple of cards and the explanations of their
SUPER-COOL ELEMENTS he has included.
And, true to my promise, we're going to blog them just like I do mine.
It's now OUR blog.  J is entering his first challenges so let's
give him a shout-out for enthusiastic participation and an A for effort! :)
Inside detail with beach scene and stamped splatters.
Sentiment he chose is very apropos:
The front features a family of sparkly heat-embossed comets.
He asked for help on this part but he picks all his own elements.
The big flower in the top left is a sunshine.
He's decorated his flowers with champagne Darice gems, which he calls
(We've been reading the Hobbit together).
J is 5 and his brother is 6, so that explains the numbers.
He even decorates the backs of his cards.  So thoroughly.
Look at his coloring.  Nice, yes?
He asked me to do the die-cutting for him on the picture.
And of course no cool card is complete without our favorite cowboy and space guy.

Do you see those hand-cut banners at the bottom?
How much cooler can you get?
Here are some challenges he will enter:
Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {Papertrey Ink}
Stamps {Hammock - Flourishes; "comets", "sun" and sentiment - Papertrey Ink;
splatters - Altenew}
Ink{Ranger and Papertrey Ink}
Spellbinders die
 Sparkly Embossing Powder {Recollections}
"Arkenstone" gems {Darice}
Sandpaper 220 grit {3M}

Thanks for dropping by and leaving J some encouraging words!
They will really make his day
(and mine :)
Take care,
Be Well,
and Enjoy the Sunshine!
