I made this card using the new set by My Favorite Things called Hit the Beach. A great set for summertime greetings, for sure! I also used the swirl stamp from the Setting the Stage set, also by My Favorite Things. Inside the card I stamped the summer drink - it's a cute little detail inside the card. I added stickles to the green swirly for sparkle. Oooh la la! =)
The cardstock I used for the base of the card is a recycled paper, so it looks like sand, with the bits of speckles in the paper.

Just shows to go ya that the most important ingredient for a great card is not expensive tools but rather the artist's vision. I have Crayola markers too, but I've certainly never achieved anything this wonderful looking with them. TFS!
