Grandparent's Day with Bitten By the Bug 2

Hello and welcome to Bitten By the Bug 2's Grandparent's Day Challenge.  In looking at photos for this challenge, I found this great old photo of my grandparents at the 50's.  So images from the Suburbia Cricut cartridge were perfect!  I used the man and woman in swimsuits, the surfboard, the beach title and the retro glasses.

I used this sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

I punched card stock a couple of times and layered to create a shadow for my shape.  The first time I cut the man's suit and towel in the patterned paper but it was too busy.  I switched up and used this dusty blue Distress Core'dinations card stock.

The sunglasses were my favorite part to cut.  I must admit I lost one of the tiny details.  So I cut it several more times, now I have a few pairs for the next project.
