  1. Aww, I love your card... and the beach! Lol. I really like your idea of using glitter to add texture for the sand. That is so creative!

  2. What a fun card!! Lovin' the sunscreen ... had to laugh at myself 'cause at first I thought it was a flask (e.g., for liquor) and then slapped my head and said well, duhhhhh, who'd bring a flask to the beach!? LOL. I guess I'm hopping too early in the morning! Sweet project -- happy summer.
