Time to Hit the Beach

Hello friends!  Today is Saturday and it is time for a fabby new sketch over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!  This week we have a wonderful CAS sketch from Belinda -
I started off with some fun papers that I've recently re-discovered in my stash - Campy Trails from American Crafts.  I love the woodgrain and funky patterns in this collection and thought they were perfect for a tiki/beach-themed card!  I stamped the sentiment from My Island in the lower corner of one of the papers and the small palm trees along the edge of the blue layer.  I covered the seam with a very thin satin ribbon.  I stamped the little hut and umbrella and cut them out and layered them on a coordinating tag.  I finished the card with some vintage wooden buttons.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a chance to play along - I can't wait to see what you create!

Supplies:  Stamps - My Island (WMS), DP/Tag - Campy Trails (American Crafts), Ink - Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Cardstock - Select White (PTI), Ribbon (Crafta), vintage buttons, Twine (PTI), foam squares
