The Beach

Hello friends, I hope you are all enjoying the change of season - whatever it may be for you.  In the Southern Hemisphere we are going from summer to Autumn/fall and it is a spectacular time here in Australia,  I thought I would pop in a beach card before it becomes a distant memory!

I have used bits and pieces that have gathered on my desk, from projects I have finished - or started and left them aside for one reason or another.  The stamp set is from JustRite Papercraft  - it is an older set but still a goodie.

I have stamped the sentiment using Imagine Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle and the shells in Dandelion and Espresso Truffle. This has been layered onto a Spellbinders Die using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and onto Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor Card Creator Die also using 3D Foam Squares.  The layers have been adhered to the pre-cut card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner.  I have finished off by tying raffia around the lower portion of the stamped layer and secured it using a button - I had to add a touch of blue as it was for the beach! Wink:wink!
