Beach Combing

     Happy 4th of July, USA!

     Summer is upon us and that means travels to the mountains for some of us or off to the beaches for others.  Today I chose to celebrate the beaches (where I'll be next week!) and chose this fun and fabulous set from MHK Designs.  Beach combing was a bit different back in the day.  :-D

     I actually used two different images from that set and blended them together.  I colored with my ProMarkers, and then hand cut the images to put them together.  They are layered onto a die cut and embossed frame (Amy Designs die) and that went directly onto the card front.

     The textured ribbon is from my stash, as is the sheer ribbon I used to tie the triple-loop bow.

     I hope your day is as cool and restful as I'm sure mine will be.  Nothing like getting away from it all.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
