Elegant Warm Wishes

I caught this week's CAS challenge on Splitcoast earlier this evening and since my hubby went to a movie, I thought I'd give it a whirl. :) It feels good to get a head start on my week.

This week's challenge is to choose a beach towel or tote from Lands' End for inspiration. I chose this towel, which is called Lime Green Stripe Hibiscus. I loved all those different shades of green! It reminded of my cruise to the Bahamas MANY years ago.

I chose to use my Beautiful Borders stamp set, and used my Garden Green, Glorious Green and Taken with Teal markers to color the image. After stamping it onto my Whisper White card, I added a little paper piercing, some gorgeous White Organza ribbon, and a few half-back pearls from the Pretties Kit. I think this would be a lovely card for a summer wedding! I really like the simplicity of this card and had lots of fun with the challenge.

I had a great time stamping yesterday afternoon with my Creative Consortium friends. I've been working on some flip books for my kids, but have yet to complete one. Once I have one done, I'll be sure to share. Have a great Monday!
