A Day At The Beach

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all have had a good start to your week and are staying cool where you are. Today I wanted to share a card I made for a challenge in my Modern Mom Group. It is a new team on Etsy that's members are all crafting moms. The challenge was to make something with a beach theme. This is what I came up with.

I started by cutting out the pail from Hawaiian Shores Cardstock using a Beach Pail SVG file. Unfortunately I can't remember where I got it though so if it looks familiar to you let me know I will put a link to it. After I cut it out I embossed it with the Sunshine embossing plate. Next I cut out a circle from stampers Select White cardstock then created the scene using images from the PTI Day at the Beach set. The little bucket is from a Beach Set by Lasting Impressions With Panache. The sand was made by tearing some Kraft Cardstock and adding it to the bottom. When I was done with that I matted the beach scene on a Harvest Gold scalloped circle. To finish the front off I added some baby popcorn trim to the top and bottom. I also finished the inside of the card too.

The winner of this challenge will get their shop featured on the blog all next month. You can vote for my card if you like it here. You can also see the rest of the entries there as well.
That's it for now. I hope to be back soon with more things to share in the meantime I hope the rest of your week is a great one and thanks for stopping by!
