Beachy Breezes

I so wish I was sending you this from the beach, but although it FEELS like we're at the beach with 93 degrees in the forecast today, I am still in Ohio. That's ok, though. Here's a little card I made to share with you that brings the beach to me!

What do you think about the embossed image? I saw Melina do this on her blog, and I just had to try it.

I used the sketch from Card Patterns.
I also entered this card in this week's the Pink Elephant challenge - 3 layers, 2 die cuts and a ribbon.

Supplies are image by SU colored in with watercolor pencils and blender pen. Cuttlebug embossing folder, nestabilities, Kaiser pearls (a great buy - you can find them in the Paper Jewels store!), PTI ribbon. Paper is SU Barely Banana, DCWV blue and DP is from the Mediterranean stack.

Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
