Sketch Saturday #415 ~ You are Awesome ~

Welcome!  I find myself thinking more and more about a real vacation.  It has been a couple of years since hubs and I made a trek to the beach.  And I think this could be the year...  Not sure if it will be the Upper Peninsula, the Atlantic or the Gulf Coast just yet...  I definitely need the feel of sand between my toes.  Until then this card, inspired by the weekly Sketch Saturday Challenge will have to do!


I started with a white card stock base measuring 5.5 x 8.5 inches, scored and folded at 4.25 inches.  I added a layer of turquoise card stock (die cut with ODBD's Pierced Rectangles Die.  I die cut two more panels of sand colored card stock and tore them into three layers to overlap and create my sand.  I used ODBD's Fence Die cut from Kraft paper to create my fence.  I cut the individual planks and added a bit of hemp twine to create my beach fence.  ODBD's Grass Border Die cut into individual grass blades added a fun touch.  I used ODBD's Leafy Edged Borders Die and more turquoise card stock for my sea and a bit of leftover scraps for the shoes (ODBD's Flip Flops Die) and umbrella (Umbrellas Die.)  I used the new June release, You Bless Me So to die cut part of the sentiment and stamp the rest.  

Here are the items you see today.

Beautiful! This is an amazing scene. So well designed and the die cuts are amazing. I love the ODBD products and combined with the Sketch Saturday Sketch it's a marriage made in heaven.
