Shovel, Pail, Ocean, Bliss
I'm already looking forward to our family's annual beach vacation later this month. Until then .... a beachy card ...
The layout is Jen's Sketch For You To Try:
I did a mirror image of the sketch to accommodate my background papers -- Webster's Pages Petite Papers and the coordinating Vellum & Diecut Kit. I used a diecut that includes the beautiful text treatment (explore, ocean, shovel & pail, etc.) and the postage-style border you see along the left. The beachy image, from JustRite's By the Sea, is colored with Copics.
Great news -- this month's SFYTT is sponsored by Your Next Stamp! One lucky sketch participant will win an awesome prize package from YNS: ten Fhiona minis and an Ellie of choice. Not only that, but any SFYTT fan can use code SFYTT15 to save 15% on her (or his) YNS order! Thanks, YNS!!
To play along, link up your creation to Jen's post. Remember to use keyword SFYTT when uploading to online galleries.

It's been a challenge getting to my craft room this week, and a challenge IN my craft room once I got there. I hope today's card doesn't look as rusty as I feel! Looking forward to a stamp-filled weekend. Hope yours is a great one!
