From One Beach Bum to Another...


I had this pretty unknown stamp image in my collection for quite a while, so I pulled out some of my favorite retired SU! papers and made a card with it. It was stamped in a brown color, so I added pale shades of pink and blue for a little interest, and layered it with some Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, and Afternoon Tea dsp, cutting all the layers with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps.

I'm entering this into the Cards in Envy "Just Beachy" challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day today!
