Beachy Thanks

Hey y'all!  I finally got into my craft room yesterday and dusted things off :) and I made a card to share today!

I got the In Color 6x6 DSP stack in my last SU! order, so I had to work it into today's card.  I started with the CASE the Designer challenge from Global Design Project:

And when we got back from Texas and Oklahoma last week, I found out my retirement card had been picked as a GDP winner, so that's pretty cool!  Thanks, y'all!  Okay, so for this challenge, I kept a similar layout, three image stamps and the same sentiment (but a different stamp) and some sequin accents and linen thread.  I was inspired to go with the Seaside Notions images because of two challenges, The Library Challenge:

I did sponge some Sahara Sand ink around the bottom of the main image panel for a bit of an ombre effect to mimic the cover of the book, but it doesn't show up as well in the photo as it does in real life.  The other challenge is As You See It:

Now I just need to send this baby out in the mail!  I always need thank you cards :)

Hope y'all are having a great week!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Seaside Notions, Tres Chic
Ink:  Sahara Sand, Seaside Spray, Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Versamark
Paper:  Sahara Sand, Thick Whisper White, Seaside Spray DSP
Accessories:  clear EP, Basics Adhesive Sequins, Mini Dimensionals, linen thread

Wow, a triple header, and you nailed all three challenges! This is my current favorite beachy stamp, and I love how you incorporated the sketch! Very pretty! Thanks for playing with As You See It this week!

I love this Christy! Not only is this set one of my current favourites, but you've done it proud! The choice of background paper is suitably water-y to add to your theme while that rusty coloured sea-horse pops right out at us. And isn't it a bit of a pain to fussy cut?! Just as well it's more than worth the effort! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge again.

Great colour palette used here, Christy!! The background paper almost makes me think of sea glass! I really like this sketchy little stamp set as well! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenges!

I love the way these ink colours go together against the contrasting patterned paper - love the twine. Thanks for joining The Library
