Relaxing at the Beach

There seems to be a pattern to my cards all of a sudden and I am a bit worried because it seems that I have developed a sand fetish.  This week the challenge at Delightful Challenges is to create a card or other project with a beach theme using the photo below for inspiration.  Of course when doesn't the beach have sand so I got my trusty sandpaper out of the cupboard and got started.

We hope you will enter this week because Digital Delights by Louby Loo is sponsoring and the prize is a $10 gift certificate for the store.

Now for the card.  While the photo has lots of turquoise and yellow in it, I thought some pink was needed for this little cutie.  I wanted to give her a relaxing adult beverage but she is way too young.  Just imagine her sitting on the beach waiting for some cool guy to try to pick her up - or maybe she is too young for that too.

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts  - Summer Days
Little Red Wagon - Use a Tree
Stampavie and More - Anything Goes
