Symphony on the Beach

Well, it is hot & sunny here in PA today, and I am thinking about the beach!! I just got a new stamp set called Nautical from Impression Obsession, and I The challenge today at SCS was to do a long skinny card, so I happened to have a piece of textured Sage Shadow that fit the bill, so this is what I came up with. It is actually about 3"x8", so it will fit into a business-sized envelope. I like the colors I used EXCEPT for the long skinny seaweedy thing in Barely Banana. Yuk. But I didn't feel like starting over, so it's in there! I love the sentiment and thanks to Carrie, I got reacquainted with my SU distresser!! Check out this posting on her blog--which is awesome, by the way---I was amazed at how "distressed" her layers were!! I thought distressing would add to the sea-worn look of this card, so away I went. (Mine still aren't as good as hers!) I also added some retired linen Magic Mesh (I hope you can see it) to sort of look like fishnet. I think I could use this card for one of many occasions! TFL! Remember you can click on the photo for a really good look!
