She Took a Pleasant Walk on the Beach

For today's 100 Proof Press Design Team project, it's all about the beach. You know that  the sea this is one of my favorite themes, so I thought I'd visit it again.

The start of this card was the wonderful 100 Proof Press, Lady with Umbrella and Hat stamp  #6371. I do adore her little umbrella. It was stamped on patterned shell paper then colored it with pencils. The cut out pictures of shells, die cuts, assorted real sea shells, star fish and plastic dew drops came next to frame the image. I just discovered Dew Drops in a local Scrapbook store clearance bin and I love them. They come in all kinds of colors, clear, pearlized and metallic too. Don't know where I've been since they came out. LOL. This detailed page was then layered on the pale blue picnic plaid background that was ink kissed with pink ink. Some light blue netting, a forever friend tag finished up this card.

Hope you will get to take a pleasant walk this week.
sincerely, gerri
