Crazy 4 Challenges - Saltwater

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are having a great weekend. This is my last week as  Guest Designer over at Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Be sure to stop by their blog for all the details. Thanks for asking me Barbara! It's been fun

This week's challenge is School's Out!!
Or soon will be in the US. What are your fun plans for vacation this summer? Going on a trip, the beach, hanging around the pool? Gardening? Just plain chilling out? Whatever your plans are, use them to inspire your card or project for this week.

Living in San Diego, we spend a lot of time at the beach in the summer. And I just love the sentiment on this card. The ocean truly does feed my soul!

I used the Inspired by the Sea Stamp Set to create my card. I stamped the shell in Whip Cream Ink and and then heat set the image with embossing powder. I cut the image out with the Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics, layering the circle on a doily cut with the Dizzy Doily Die-namics.

The sentiment is cut out with the Vertical Stitched Strips Die-namics. I added some burlap and twine from my stash.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Fall Foliage Stamp Set.
