Blogger Challenge - At the Shore

We are going to the beach tomorrow for my GD's birthday and having a "boatnic", this card is perfect for the occasion.  Very CAS, only stamped inside, using G45.  I used the oldie but goodie filmstrip tech from the TJNL.  Have a great weekend, I'm going to have a one, nothing better than the beach! If you'd like to play along with the sketch challenge, hop on board!   hugz.


...and here is the sketch...

HI Gerrie~

What a glamorous card! I love the focal image! The dp is beautiful, and I love to use that "film strip" technique! I used to use it when I scrapbooked more. I think I should try it on a card...so maybe I can be like you! (I WISH!)

Have a fabulous time at the beach! Sounds like a great idea. Maybe I'll hit the sand this weekend, too! Aren't we fortunate to live where it is warm?
