Let's get started !!

Here's my card for 
I started with a Kraft colored cardstock for my main
card. I edged it using a sponge and a coordinating
ink. I took white cardstock and stamped the waves,
using the zig-zag stamp, in different blue inks. Taking
a piece of the Kraft I tore my sand dune and sponged
some matching ink and stamped my sentiment in
a blue ink, from my waves. For the palm tree I applied
the green ink directly to the leaves  of the stamp
and a brown ink to the trunk, then stamped and
cut it out. I put my layers together, adding a nice blue
to the help the waves "POP"!  I took a dauber and
created my sun and put some blue to the sky as well.

Stamps can be found in MFP Stamp Shop.
I used 
"Flamingos On Vacation" (seen above)
" Silly Shells" (seen above)
