This card is for Lydia's HYCCT challenge~ A Walk In The Woods. She wanted us to make a card using outdoorsy inspiration.
I am fortunate to live near the beach. I love to go there to collect my thoughts and listen to the birds and the waves and feel the sand between my toes and the wind gently blowing against my face. There is nothing more peaceful and calming in my book.
So I wanted to make this last HYCCT challenge a special one for the recipient of this card as well as myself. For the first time ever I used distressed inks and watercolored my beach scene. No copics...what is up with that? lol.
I am pleased with the result and can now go to the beach this afternoon to relax after a month of card frenzy and regroup for whatever challenge comes our way next.

Love your beautiful beach scene! You are a lucky girl... not only for living near and enjoying the beach, but for having your HYCCT challenges done! I have five (in various stages of completion) to go, and if I'm lucky, I'll get to visit the beach and/or lakeshore when I'm done. Probably with a parka, hat and mittens though... LOL
