Thinking Warmer Thoughts

 We have had more snow here in Ohio but my thoughts have shifted to the beach and warmer temps in this card.  I am trying to use some unused stamps and decided to use this sandcastle stamp which inspired me to create a summer card. I used the Sketch Challenge from What If? Wednesday. To add interest to the strips on the design, I used 3 different EF's instead of 3 colors or DP's. I also added a strip of flock to represent sand and a starfish charm.

The House That Stamps Built: What If ? Wednesday Sketch #D2612

Stamps: Repeat Impressions Sand Castle and Sentiment.

Maybe this will warm me up.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
