My favorite place to be is on a sunny beach! (Although in my jammies at home is a close second! LOL) I was inspired by Nancy's (Stiz2003) sparkly Christmas card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2593402
I just love all the sparkle and thought I would try a beach scene with lots of sparkle. I used a paper towel and just colored my scene with copic markers. Then I sprayed the paper towel with adhesive and used darker blue glitter for the sky, aqua for the sea and ultra fine clear for the sandy beach.
The sun is a die cut and I pulled a cotton ball apart for the fluffy cloud. The foliage die cuts are from the SU Secret Garden set and the letters are Tim Holtz for Sizzix.
This card will probably go to my Mom. I am so thankful for her! I have to many things and folks to be thankful for, including you for stopping by to take a peek!

This is delightful in so many ways! I miss a good beach, being too far from the ocean these days. I adore the way you built this scene! Copics on a paper towel with glitter? Get out! So brilliant! I'm so glad you played my Mix-Ability challenge!
