Sandcastle Dreams

Yes, I know! Two posts in one day. I got a small patch of crafty time today while my son played with his trucks and my daughter took a nap. I kept this one pretty simple, but I love the colors and the stamp makes me dream of the beach.

I am entering this card in several challenges.
Pink Elephant - use brown
Cardabilities - the sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges - buttons


Supplies are image and sentiment from Raisin Boat colored in with SU watercolor pencils, softened with Blender pen, and highlighted with Stickles and a glitter pen. Scalloped border is a SU punch. Buttons are PTI and ribbon is from my stash. Paper is SU Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery and Close to Cocoa. The cream paper and striped paper is DCWV.

Thanks for stopping by again! Please check out the main page - I have some blog candy that ends Wednesday, and scroll down for another post from a little bit ago!
