Cardz 4 Guyz


     Today I have a card I would like to enter into the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, # 173, called Beside the Sea.  

     I started with a white card base, and some beautiful blue chevron paper from Heidi Swapp, with no name.  The next grungy layer was printed.  I cut my Sailboat die and shell border dies from scraps.  The seagulls are from Impression Obsession, and I added a few wraps of hemp twine as an accent.

     The sentiment will be added to the inside later, when I see what I will use it for.

     We are heading into a stretch of oppressive heat, so it will be time to run from the AC to the car and back.  Keep cool, and I will check in soon!

WOW, this is so pretty, Mary Anne! Love the different papers you used....looks so great with the diecuts! The twine you used just completes this card so nicely and i'd imagine that this could be used for many different occasions, too! So cool! Love it!! TFS and stay as cool as you can! I know Shawn was dreading work the next day or 2 with this current heatwave. He is drained till he gets home in the evenings!

Back from my trip and catching up on some blogs between the mounds of laundry! LOL I've been debating on this sailboat die for awhile now......love the way you used it! I just may have to cave. Looks great with the twine.

I already love this sailboat die as I've borrowed it enough times, but I just love all the other accents and embellishments you added to this - especially the gulls! An awesome seaside card for anyone!
