I just had to take a peek at today’s Color Throwdown colors, ‘cuz I missed them so much!  Here are Laura’s colors:

swatch 136

and I paired them up with the MFT sketch for this week:


I just bought the PI Beach Bum set because my DGD’s birthday is in August and I thought it would be cute for her, but I couldn’t wait that long to play with it!  The colors seemed beachy to me, too!  Here ya go:


I also used some CC Salt Air paper , a little beachy border punch, some sparkly twill, a few little pearls and pleated seam binding for my creation!  There’s also some DD glitter on the “sand” too, but you can’t see it here. :(


Fun sketch, fun card!  DGD is fighting her first cold, poor thing, and although her mood is fine, she is taking a much longer nap today---so I had more stamping time!  Thanks for stopping by today!

This is so adorable. I love PI. I have four in a cart at MFT right now. I just didn't press buy yet. What is CC paper? and is DD Dazzling diamonds?
Did it pick up the color under it? It really looks like sand.
I hope Cassidy is feeling better.

Look at those big blue eyes! You must never tire of looking at them. :) I remember my first born's first cold, and I felt so terribly for her!

Your card is adorable, makes me think of Cassidy when she gets a teeny bit older.
