Good morning, crafty friends! The new Pink Elephant Challenge is up and running with this beautiful inspiration photo! I was inspired by the soothing colors and textures and reminded of fun on the beach!
I paired the inspiration from the photo with this wonderful sketch from CAS(E) this sketch #32! CAS cards are not my forte, but I know a good sketch when I see one!
I inked up a couple of stamp sets from The Alley Way Stamps...Tropical Hideaway and All About You...to create a clean, fresh, beach-y card using the new paper stack from Authentique called Essentials Collection! After a few layers with the ever-fabulous My Favorite Things dies, fewer than my usual, I added some Papertrey Ink baker's twine and a sprinkling of those amazing Avery Elle sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by the stage! If you're up for a Fancy Pants Designs GIVEAWAY, head on over to my Facebook page, Stacey's Stamping Stage, LIKE, COMMENT, and SHARE the Giveaway by Friday at noon for your chance to win!
