Last month's theme for the stamp club card swap was anything beach-related with a watercolor background and an embellishment. Since I was in Montana, I wasn't able to get it done, but this is what I came up with.
a card I received from Cheryl Wilcox (Love to Stamp & Scrap). Palm trees, sand, flip-flops, and a glorious sunset sure makes me think of the beach! See the tiny flowers on the flip-flops? That's from the pieces leftover when you use the Lace Ribbon Border Punch!
Ya know, I wasn't too enamored of the Calypso Coral when I first saw it, but it sure is growing on me, and it is gorgeous with the other new In Colors!
