We took a little trip over to the North Carolina coast this past weekend. DH got to tour the Battleship North Carolina for the first time. He loved it! I had no idea how big those ships are – or how hot they are below decks. Whew! It was interesting and not as claustrophobic as I thought it would be, but I was glad to get back up on deck.
The beach was wonderful. It was so good to be able to dip my feet in salt water again. So relaxing. Most of the (HUGE!) houses along the beach were painted all different colors – they were just beautiful. Pastel blues, yellows, pinks, coral….yum. Many of them were brighter colors and it really put me in the mood to use some brighter colors on my cards this time.
As usual, I made a couple of the same design, using slightly different color combinations.
The striped paper is by S.E.I. and has glittery strips on it, very sparkly although it is hard to see in the photos. The green flowers are Primas and the coral ones are silk ones that I probably got at M’s in the floral department and ripped apart. I put the circle with the sentiment off center and accented it with a little rhinestone. The sentiment is from the PTI Butterfly Dreams set which was released a few months ago. The border punch is from Martha.
Thanks for stopping by and for those of you who live at the beach – you are lucky ducks!!
