Imagine This................"Water"


Well, today starts a new month at 365 Cards. Today's challenge is to use water as the basis of your card. Well, since I just purchased the new Cricut cartridge "Life is a Beach", I had the perfect die cuts for this one. First, I used a white card base and added chalking to represent my sun and sky. Then, I added some papers to represent the sand and water. The chair, umbrella and seagulls were cut from the cartridge. I added some very fine glitter to the seagulls. This will most likely be a birthday card, telling the recipient to relax and enjoy the day. I wanted to keep it simple so it gives the feeling of relaxation. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty card. It just doesn't get any more perfect than having a challenge "Made" for you.
