CTD248: Thoughts of Summer Card

I decided to make one of my paper cards as inspiration for a digital one.  Summer is here and we have been spending A LOT of time swimming.  For my card class this week we made a beach inspired card.  So, when I saw the colors on Color Throwdown this week, I knew they would make a great beach card too.

The Crumb Cake and Cool Carribean made me think of sand and water.  I did not have Cool Carribean, so I use Pool Party instead.

There is nothing like relaxing on a beach to set my imagination free.  A blanket and umbrella make this scene complete.  I also added some splatter to give texture to the sand. Since I could not find DSP that I really liked for the beach blanket I made my own with some free form lines.

The inside got a little touch of the beach, as well.  This is a great generic card to send to someone, just to let them know you are thinking of them during the busy summer months.  How do you like to spend your summer?
