VCMP #4- Beachy Thinking of You

So, it's time for another VCMP post.  Can you tell I don't want to do lesson plans or chores?  If you want more details about the VCMP, scroll down to my recent posts. 

This challenge was to make a beach-themed thinking of you card.  While I have a couple of beach stamps, they lend themselves to making a scene and I never like what I make with them.  Instead, I grabbed this decade-old die cut, mounted it on white to help it look a bit cleaner, and placed it on a card based on Sketch 42.  The stamp is my KI Memories, the brads are from Colorbok, and the papers are from K&Co. 



















Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: none thus far, but my box is filling up nicely!

  4. I never do well with "scenes" either :) This decade old die-cut has clearly been waiting for this specific moment in time because it is just perfect for this challenge! I love how you turned the sentiment into the flag tying it into the image. Great job!

  7. You picked the perfect die cut. It is such fun to find "old" goodies in our stash that work so well for a certain person, challenge, or event.
