Simon Says .........By the Sea

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to our  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!  This week our theme is By the Sea 



and the Design Team are all using products from Fancy Pants.  Here's my first card for this week:

SSS July 17 By the Sea 1

I chose 2 products from Fancy Pants Down by the Shore collection: the 6" paper pad, and the Flair set.  Following a sketch, I used lots of the papers, making one of them into a little tag.  I even used the cover of the pad for my sentiment!  Here's a close-up of the Flair button I used:

All of the papers in this collection are perfect for summer, so while I had them out, I made another nautical card:

SSS July 17, By the Sea 2

I used the sentiment from a Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards stamp set, Bring on the Sun, and added some die-cut clouds and a sailboat I made using geometric shapes.  

As always, our Heidi has provided us with another $50.00 gift voucher to the winner of this challenge:


What would you choose at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore?



Thanks for visiting me today!  Be sure to see what my teamies did for this challenge!
