Inspired by a Beach Scene

I found a new challenge this week, through Colleen Dietrich's blog!  It's called Inspired by Stamping, and here is the photo that they gave us to work with:

Just fell in love with those colors; maybe because it's so hot here in NE Ohio, and that scene looks so breezy and cool?  Here's the card I made:

Inspired by a Beach Scene

supplies: sand crdstock, design papers from MME Lost & Found 2 "Breeze", leaves from Basic Grey's "Serendipity", Hero Arts CL527 Stitched Frame, LL007 Seasonal Memories, VersaFine onyx black ink, sand pearls, Tombo aqua marker to highlight word
