8th Wedding Anniversary Card

I guess it's a bit strange of a card to make for an Ann. card! I just wanted to do something different and we did get married on Secret Beach in Maui... so I thought a beach theme would work. I think that was my second time using this set. I had bought it planning to use for scrapbooking beach pics of my girls, but I never really did get into scrapbooking. I much prefer card making. I loved this weeks colour challenge. I'm really gonna miss these blues. Sets I used are The Shore Thing, Happy Everything and So Many Thoughts (on the inside it says forever and always). Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Real Red are this weeks CC 169 on SCS. I used my C.M. wave template thingy to make waves. . Stamped the chair and them restamped on a post it not to put over the top of it and then stamped all the sand around it. Added a bucket, a starfish, birds and the sun (colouring over the so saffron with a glaze pen to give it a nice shine). We are going back to Maui for our 10 yr Ann. 2 more years to wait. Out for dinner tonight to The Keg to celebrate. Went to The Kingfisher Spa on Vancouver Island for our 10 yr Ann. of being together 2 weekends ago. Life is good!!!

Gorgeous Darlin' I love that colour combo. I think the neutral for the sand that you added makes it extra awesome. I love the little details like the sand coloured in the pail. Makes me want to make a beach card (and go to Maui!) ;0) mel
P.S. I will die without those blues (NO exaggeration!)
