Don't pass out - it's a card!

I finally got my new camera!! Granted, this was the 2nd one I got since the first was defective (it wouldn't even turn on when I opened the box). I'm very happy with my purchase though & hopefully this will get me back into blogging.

A friend of mine requested a card with a "beach or tropical theme" & wouldn't you know it? I had no beach or tropical stamps. So.....I really did *have* to buy this set from Papertrey Ink, right? It's not like I had a choice or anything. That's my story & I'm sticking to it.

I lucked out & found some "sand" paper in my stash so I ripped it kind of unevenly hoping that the white remnant would look like the foam waves make when they come up on the beach. Mission accomplished? It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it.

Thanks for checking in!


  1. That's one stamp set I want to 'have to' buy too :) Perfect ripping on the sand paper - I love it!

  2. The sand on your card is too cute!!! Also just love the ribbon for the sun's rays! Very creative!
