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.
