I’ve been missing beach so much lately. I lived in Hawaii for few years and my in-laws also live in Big Island right now. I wanted to go back this year but just been so busy! So I’ve decided to play with some coral colors and pearls so it will help with my beach blues. Here is what I came up with:
It is a pretty simple card but has lots of details to it. I added dimension on the card by punching out some circles and backed with Polka Dot Parade DSP. I used Lacy & Lovely Stamp Set for the main image. What do you think about the card? Do colors call Summer at all to you?
Sentiment is shaped out with Apothecary Accents Framelits. I only used partial of the cut out shape to make it a bit fun. I also used our Paper-Piercing Pack to add texture to the shape.
Hope you have some FUN summer plans ahead!! I can’t believe we are already heading to the middle of July-!
