Blogger Challenge - At the Beach

Hi and Welcome to my blog. -  Today I'm joining in on the fun of Blogger Challenge where the featured theme this week is,  At The Beach.  This is pretty much where I'd rather be today then watching it rain outside again.  The cold, rainy weather is messing with my sinuses something awful and I'd much prefer a nice sunny beach to relax on then being cooped up inside but alas it is what it is.

Don't forget to stop by Lisa's blog, Splendiferous Creations and check out the other beach themed cards.

For this card I used Stamps from Amuse Studio's,  Life's a Breeze stamp set.
Card Stock - SU - Cherry Cobbler, Groovy Guava*, Brocade Blue*, and Whisper White.
Designer Paper - Three Bugs in a Rug
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Brocade Blue*, Dusty Durango*
Other: Prisma Colored Pencils, Pearls (Zva), Toothpick, Nestabilitie Dies, Punch (Fiskars) and foam mounting tape.
Card Sketch is from: Paper Craft Planet Sketch
Have a fabulous weekend.
