From The Heart Stamps Sketch #34

I'm entering a Card Sketch Challenge at From The Heart Stamps.  Hop on over to get the sketch and enter.  You have until Sunday night to post your project.

So, here's my card.

You might wonder why I made a beachy summer card when fall is almost here.  Some really good friends have their anniversary next month and they are going to Anna Maria Island in Florida and will stay at a condo for a whole week.  I am so jealous.  Anyway, I wanted to make a card that would celebrate their anniversary and also be a reminder of their trip.  The cute Sea Turtle Beach image is what I printed on white cardstock.  I layered the sentiment under the image right where I wanted.  That's the beauty of working with digital stamps.  I colored it using Copic markers and some glitter pens.  I sponged the background with some distress ink and added a die cut sun that has lots of sparkles.

Did you notice the two little hearts in the sandpail?  Perfect for a romantic beach getaway.

After I finished the card I wasn't entirely sure I fulfilled the sketch challenge so I made sure when I put together the inside.

My orange sun with the clouds peeking over really completed the card.  From the Heart Stamps has lots of cute images.  Check it out!


  1. Very sweet! What a great place for your friends to spend an anniversary. An adorable card, Vicki!
