Life is Better at the Beach ...

Happy Day All!
How was your 4th of July?

Today I have a card for the Memory Box Challenge I spotted while blog hopping around.   Their theme is 'Surf & Turf' ... nautical, beach, etc. ... how clever is that!  And, what fun!

Here's what I've created ...


I created my background using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks then added two Memory Box dies ... 'Oceana Corner' and an older die called 'Big Splash Border (#98438)'.

INSIDE using the Memory Box 'Sandal Border' die (#98332)

My sentiment is from Impression Obsession which I die cut twice ... once from the same teal color card stock as my card base and the second from a scrap of black card stock.  Then layered them a bit of set to create a shadow.  The inside rectangle panel is from the Tutti Designs 'Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangles' set and I have left it blank since I felt this card could be used for a variety of occasions.

Challenges to share in:
Animal Friends Challenge - Water + animal (fish in the border)
Color It, Create it, Show it Off July Challenge - Under the Sea / Anything Goes
Scrapy Land Challenge #193 - ATG with product carried at their store

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are having a fabulous week!
As always ...

I have this swirl die in my stash ans I never use it because I dont't know what to do with it. But now I see your card and which great effect it has to it. So I have to take it out of the draw, I think!
Our national holiday is on april 27th, so 4th of July is no holiday over here...

LOVE that beautiful blue background! You make me want to simply go play with backgrounds. You're so good at them! Awesome dies, including the Big Splash Border, which is one of my faves and I've used it lots. And, oh, the flip flop border is perfect for the inside! You've got beach on the brain lately and I love it!

How true! Great die cut sentiment and I love that Ocean corner and the flip flop border--now that is unique!

I so agree with this sentiment, love your corner ocean die and the way you used the big splash border too, you did a fabulous job on the background!!

This card makes me want to go back to the lake house, the water was about 5 shades of blue, like your background, so pretty...another fabulous card my friend!!
