Now I have to say that just about any beach pictures that I really love all the colors palette you see below. Its so soothing and clean, which is not what you have at the beach most of the time when sand is involved. However sitting on the beach with the waves crashing down and the sun warming your toes. Aaaahhh.. nothing like that. Instead I am here at my house with no sand or waves. Darn!!! ha ha I stamped the chair and some of the palm tree from Beach Life onto classic white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Colored with copic collections water, flesh toens 1 and 2, green grass. After I colored the image I lightly sponged some clouds into the background and added scored lines to the edges. Had some of the soothing polka dot paper in the scrap bin and added some of our Color Made Easy Emerald Coast paper to the side with a scalloped edge. The white wrinkled ribbon tied into a bow with a pearl center. Voila!

Ahhhh, everything about this card whispers relaxation. I want to sneak I side and grab the hammock that is hiding at the side. Love everything about this card - soft colors, dsp that that makes a statement without overpowering, and the placement of your images in the panel. Beautifully designed card. TFS!
