Inspired by a Beach Scene

I found a new challenge this week, through Colleen Dietrich's blog!  It's called Inspired by Stamping

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:


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

Oh, yay! Lin, I am so excited that you came to play at Inspired by Stamping's challenge. :) I love the papers you chose to paper-piece with, and the sentiment on the grid. Thanks for the shout-out, too. :) Have a beautiful day!
