Paper Sweeties July 2016 BLAST FROM THE PAST!

Hi there!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Blast from the Past!   Debbie is giving us a break this month, so I searched for some of my favorite cards!  We will return next month with projects featuring a new release!  

The above card was posted last summer on 6-15-15. 
I used the stamp set Surf's Up, which has the boat and fish.  And, I used the stamp set Island Time for the sentiment.  

For my card, I started with a white card base.  The background was made using salty ocean and tumbled glass distress inks for the water.  I used a white gel pen and copic marker for more interest with the waves.  The sky was made using mustard seed and spiced marmalade distress inks.  The sequins(Robin Egg) and (Frosting) along with tiny blue beads were placed for the shaker.  Twine(Blueberry) and blue beads to finish off the card.

Please follow along with the list below for more awesome inspiration from my teammates!

Maria Patrick--that's me

And, just a reminder...I hope to see your creation over at the Paper Sweeties Challenge that is still going on until the end of the month!

And,  here it is this month's...
