CASS - Clean and Simple Summertime

Hello friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog.
Today, Miranda is our hostess and the theme she has chosen is:

clean and simple summercard

I decided to go back in time and use one of my very first
Stampin' Up stamp sets called Seaside Sketches (circa 2003).

I stamped my image onto a panel of white card stock
the attached the masked image I created years ago and had
stuck onto the top of my wooden block before using Tim Holtz distress
inks for my coloring.

Love how it turned out . . .

I hope you'll come join in this FUN challenge
and there are prizes offered too!
Hope to see you there!!

  14. Darlene as soon as I saw this image I recognized it...while I didn't own it long ago...I did just purchase it at a resale shop. Alas, it is missing the seagulls! You have inspired me to try and use it, such a lovely card. I absolutely LOVE seeing old stamps get used!
