Just Beachy

Happy Wednesday! I made today's card for the Whimsy Stamps June Facebook challenge. This month the theme is "Just Beachy". This could be a beach scene, beach image, or simply beachy colors. I did struggle a little bit with this one, as I didn't really get any "beachy" stamps from the last release, but I did receive a beachy sentiment stamp set (Sun-sational from Raindrop Echo Designs) so I decided to use it for the challenge and create a CAS style card with it.



The flourish behind the sentiment is from Whimsy's set "Lavish Flourishes" and still one of my most favorite stamps. Not much to tell here, I simply stamped the circle sentiment onto recollections 110lb card stock, then punched out using a 1 1/4 inch punch, layered onto a scallop circle shape (SU), and then adhered onto the card using dimensionals. Papers are from my stash. Flowers are by recollections, I added rhinestones to the flower centers and then some twine. 

If you'd like to join is this month in Whimsy's Facebook challenge, simply click this link. You may use any Whimsy rubber or digi stamps as the focal point to play along, and there is a fantastic prize up for grabs.

I love the papers you have chosen. The first thing I saw when I looked at it was the gorgeous 'wave' splashing off the top of the sea rolling in! It must have been the suggestion of the title, but it looks absolutely fabulous as a beach scene without any sand or plain blue for water.

Thanks for sharing with us
