Life's A Beach

Hi Crafty Friends,
Have you been to the beach this summer? Does this card remind you of your trip? I haven't been to the beach and don't have any plans to go so I can only live vicariously through my cards :). Isn't her PINK bathing suit and bow on her hat soooo cute!?

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite beach?
A: Me? Pentwater, Michigan Beach where we used to go on family vacation every summer

 I started my card by creating the water panel using distress oxide inks and a cool stencil from Catherine Pooler called Swoop.
I mounted my panel on a pink base and add the sand which is just torn and inked kraft paper. Then I put the die cut sun and clouds int he sky and added the cute little baby girl.
