In style Stamps Wednesday Challenge

I am totally thrilled to be a Guest Designer For In Style Stamps! Each Wednesday, one of the talented DT host a challenge. This weeks theme is to create a Beach themed card. I used my Gorgeous Leila digi image to create my summery card. Coloured her with about 35 shades of! and made the beach scene behind her with a nesties die, sponging the sky in with cool carribean and some torn and inked creamy caramel card stock. The paper is from K&CO. Karen Gavin Collection, along with some matching Die Cuts........lot's of flowers and butterflies in this 8x8 pad.
Base cardstock colour is Kiwi Kiss, the accent Ribbon is SU Olive, but it matches perfectly with the Cardstock. I also used a Martha Stewart Border Punch for the Striped accent layer. The sentiment is from Everyday Flex Phrases, a retired but much loved sentiment set!
