Ocean Paradise

I made this card for Sweet Stop Sketch #160 and used my Ocean Paradise set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps...


Both clouds (MFT die-namics) are up on foam tape and so is the main image.  Stickles were added to the image for some sparkle (eucalyptus on the grass, platinum on the sand, and stardust in the water).  Papers are Paradise Beach by Echo Park that I bought from i{heart}papers.  The ric-rac was cut with an MFT die-namics die and the flag die is from Lil' Inker Designs.

Have a good one!

Love how the colors have a calming effect - I can hear the water lapping up on the shore line.

Have to admit though - the design paper made me think of lizards that seem to appear out of nowhere. {grin}
