SC -- Thinking Beach!!!!

Talk about a wild sketch challenge!! Wowza!! So if you first looked at this card and asked yourself, "Exactly what was Joanne drinking this morning?" I would not be surprised. It looks a bit disjointed to me.......but maybe that is just how MY card turned out. This was the sketch.... So, as you can see, I did follow this wild and wacky sketch, with the exception of the circle areas where I added an extra brad.

I went with a beach theme......palm trees to represent the tropical breezes and flora, the sand which is warm and comforting between your toes, the water which is warm and soothing, and the umbrellas to bring the color of the beach to the card. This theme was probably picked because today it is brisk and wet here in eastern Connecticut.

I hope you all are in the midst of a fabulous week. Have a wonderful day.

You were braver than me to attempt this sketch, but I love your combined elements of sand, sea, and beach!!
