Feeling Beachy!

Good evening ladies!
I know it is late in the day, but I wanted to share my beach themed card for this week's Mojo Monday #235. I have been making several kind of vintage feeling cards lately and today I felt like being at the ocean...I'm so ready for a vacation! How about you? I LOVE the ocean and my favorite place to go is Santa Monica, CA. Wish I was there now....well, maybe this summer...
Here is the beautiful sketch by Teresa Kline....thank you!

Here is my beach card...I was trying to think of a good sentiment to give to a friend of mine who loves the beach too. This is what I ended up making on the computer and printing out..I seen this before online...I liked the way it sounded.

The paper are from K & Company " Sea Glass" Collection....it really is perfect for beach cards or scrapbook layouts. I also used my NEW "Zutter Distrezz-It-ALL" from Donna Salazar! Totally amazing and so fast to distress your papers quickly... :) I made the teal flower with "Rose Creations" from Donna Salazar and the green flowers are prima....finally used some again! I also used "Lacey Circles" from spellbinders and MS "Double Loops" Punch.

A super close-up of the flowers and the sentiment. I used 2 different fonts and still love making my own flowers for the perfect color blending!

Hope you feel relaxed enjoying my beach themed card....I can almost hear and smell the ocean....ahhhh!
Have a great night!
