Living the beach.

I decided to tackle two challenges with this card. The layout comes from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #19 and the color combo is this week's color challenge on Splitcoast: Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie.

This is such a fun color combination for "summery" cards. I am so glad that I have some of my Washington Apple dsp left, because it fits perfectly with the color challenge. I also wanted to do something with those super cute flip-flops (I can never bring myself to call them thongs - hee hee) from Holiday Blitz, and I thought they would fit well with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch. All in all, a pretty quick card to put together!

OK, so tomorrow is the LAST blog candy giveaway! Can you believe it? I'll be posting a project and a picture of the goodies that will be going home to one lucky winner. Be sure to stop by tomorrow and leave me a comment for a chance to win!

Stamps: Holiday Blitz, Full of Life, Polka Dot
Paper: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Washington Apple dsp
Ink: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue
Accessories: So Saffron striped grosgrain ribbon, Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon
