Sea and Sand

Is it Monday already!  I hope everyone has enjoyed the weekend.  Here in the U.S we celebrated Independence Day last Friday.  My little family went down to San Antonio to enjoy family and friends at a barbecue.   My little darlings had so much fun.

There were so many fabulous entries in last weeks "Red White and Blue" challenge.  I can't wait to see what you all come up with in this week's "Sea and Sand" challenge over at the Kraft Journal.  For my project I pulled out an old stamp set from Stampin Up called Crab and Company.

I started with a Lunch Bag Kraft Note card.  I love having these on hand to for quick card making, and because they come with a coordinating envelope I'm ready to pop this little cutie in the mail!  
I first added some gingham paper which I tied a bow around using some seam binding, and Bright Hemp Cord.  Next I adhered the gingham piece down.  Using a circle die and pinked circle die from Spellbinders nestabilites I added my "Sandy" scene!  I created the sand using some sand printed pattern paper along with some Vintage dictionary pages.

To create the sky, I blended shades of blue using Copic markers.  Next I stamped my crab and present image and colored with my Copic markers.   I adhered them onto the scene setting the crab slightly off the circle.  To finish my card I used the sentiment that came along with the stamp set.  I love the way this one turned out.  I hope you all have a chance to play along this week and have as much fun creating!  Our design team has more inspiration for you to get your creative juices flowing.  Just hop on over to The Kraft Journal to take a look!  

Thanks for stopping by,
