It’s funny how you don’t appreciate something until it’s gone. I’ve had the Summer by the Sea set since it went on sale a few years ago and never used it! Now that it’s going and I’ve started using it, I find that I quite like it. I based the color scheme for this card on the Seaside Ribbon OriginalS collection. it may sound funny to say this, but this card makes me feel peaceful – the colors and the image are so serene. The card itself is Bashful Blue, the strips are Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue and the Sage color of ribbon with the chocolate polk a dots. I colored in the main image with Sage Shadow, Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue, using a blender pen and re-inkers. The greeting is from Mini Mates. I embellished the card with Silver brads, the Bluebird Grosgrain ribbon and the stitched chocolate ribbon (again from the Seaside collection). Please click on the picture for a list of supplies. Thanks for looking!
