Tidal Collage: I'm a Guest Designer!

So a couple of weeks ago, I entered a card in a color challenge at The Color Throwdown and I was chosen as that week's Featured Stamper :)  Lovely surprise, that!  So today I get to be a guest designer for this week's new challenge, and I think maybe they picked these colors just for me 'cause I love them!  Take a look:

Gorgeous, am I right?  I love them all.  Maybe it's weird to love Sahara Sand, but it's like a perfect light-colored neutral, and Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana are just awesome so ya know I think this one's a winner.  Actually, I even made two cards with these colors, but here's the one I'm sharing today:

It took me a while to settle on using By the Tide, but I like how this turned out.  Once again Gorgeous Grunge sneaks back onto my stamping table!  I like that spatter stamp for a nice sandy background, perfect for a beachy card.  And here it is cold and rainy outside where I am and it's almost June :p

Check out the Color Throwdown blog for more beautiful creations.  So glad I was asked to be a guest designer!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  By the Tide, Gorgeous Grunge, Four You
Ink:  Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Early Espresso
Paper:  Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Accessories:  Hexagon punch (for the end of my banner, honestly I rarely use it for hexagons), Dimensionals

Won't be cold and rainy for long -- well, it will be THERE, but you won't be THERE much longer. Dad was saying you'll be back in about 5 weeks. Wow, I absolutely CANNOT BELIEVE THAT -- nor my good fortune! Love you!
