Summer Sand Castle

A little early or wishful thinking perhaps (!?) to have a sand castle card here in Massachusetts.
This is for a few challenges -  The Split Coast Ways to Use It Challenge - to use banners (flying high from my castle spire!) , the Split Coast Free 4 All challenge - to machine or die cut instead of hand cutting (this castle is from the Silhouette shape store)

And finally this is for the Raise the Bar Challenge #107 -  for June, July and August - you have the whole month to link your card - the theme for June is Summer!  Hence the sand castle.

I have a couple of projects posted over at the Pouch Mart Blog - I'd love if you'd check it out and leave a comment!

Stamps: Summer & vacation sentiments $1 stamp set from Michaels  
Paper: Hawaiian shores - PTI, Close to Cocoa - SU  
Ink: Archival ink - Coffee  
Accessories: Nested pennants - Spellbinders, Scor Pal, Sand Castle cut with Silhouette Machine
