Ocean Blue and Sand

Since it is blazing hot here and I am thinking of blue water to soak my hot feet in...I decided to make a card that matched my thoughts. This is for this week's sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday .

I love this quote and the cool shades of blues with the creams makes me think of time by the ocean. Hope you enjoy and can stop by to check out this awesome site. Wishing you all a great day. Now off to see if I can visit a few of you....Internet was down most of yesterday and I am afraid that I am behind in seeing all of your creations.

Card Details:
Paper: Bazzill textured, Unknown creams
Ink: Versafine vintage sepia
Images: Gina K Designs "Gifts of the Sea"
Other: Offray ribbon

Hi Patti, I do love your card, great stamps from Gina K Design and your colours work perfectly together. This is a lovely card awesome work. We've started winter here in New Zealand and on Sunday it was 20c which is about 68F for you and it hasn't been cold here yet just waiting for the temperatures to drop. The water was quite warm at our beach house that my younger son decided to go for a swim brave boy just in his shorts not even a wetsuit on!!! Hd didn't stay in for long!!! Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

Lovely card, Patti! Great use of the sketch. Love how you used the stamps from this set...it's one of my faves. Had heavy rain, thunderstorms and hail this am so our heat wave cooled down. Keep cool!

Love those shades of blue along with the sand! Since we're a ways off from a beach, a dip in a cool pool sounds good about now!

This is gorgeous, love the colors you used and what patience you have cutting out those shells. Love it and I am now picturing myself at the beach walking along the shore :)

Nothing like walking in sand cooled by the waves from the tide, a summer breeze with the smell of the fresh ocean air and beautiful blue water. This beautiful card reminds me of all those wonderful trips to the Pacific. Beautifully created Patti. "Hugs" Carol
