YNSC41 - Charming!

Today we have an awesome challenge up at Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog. Yippeeeee. 

The card I created today is using the oh so adorbale Beach Babe Fhiona stamp from Your Next Stamp.

She is just a little darling thing, and worked perfectly with me new Cosmo Cricket Salt Air Paper packet.  I see myself using this Paper Pack threw out the summer for sure!

Here is the charm I added - A Sand Dollar.  Beaches always remind me of Sand Dollars. When I was kid my Mom would take us to the Beach in New Jersey and we spent our whole week in the water and the sand.  We would always hit the cheesy tourist gift shops, and I always bought Sand Dollars. I actually have quite a collection from my childhood days.  Now, I can not think of the Beach without thinking of a Sand Dollar. 

I colored my image with copics and used a few different dies: MFT Flat Bottom Clouds, MFT Jumbo Scallop and TCP's Wave Cut-up Die. The sun I created using plain and scalloped circle Nestabilities.

I also used some Cork Paper and Felt (two new obsessions that are starting to really show lol) and some lovely Twine for accent.

Just a Reminder.....Karen is now offering a Weekly Sale. Yes, you heard that right WEEKLY SALES.
