By the Sea

This should be my last one for today. Maybe I should have wrote that on the first one I posted! LOL This card is for sketch #8 over at Sherri is at the beach so it inspired her sketch for this week. She says to use the sketch to create a beach themed card with just a few "musts!"
Follow the sketch: sub at will, but it must look like the sketch. Use a cricut cut of something from the beach. Animals, flip flops, shells,whatever...and use red and yellow somewhere on your card. I made a 5 X 5 card. A first for me. Usually I do 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 or A2 cards. I used Stretch Your Imagination cartridge for my circles and shells. I used my Gyspy to hide shells and only cut the fan shell and sand dollar. I used yellow shimmer chalk on the sanddollar to give it some shimmer and shine and give it the yellow color. I like it better that way instead of yellow paper. Used white shimmer chalk on the fan shell. Computer generated the sentiment. You have until Wednesday, 7/13 at 11:59 pm EST to enter a beach card. Come join in the fun!! Hope ya'll like my card. :)
If you have a moment, check below for the Christmas card I did for cricutcardzchallenge and cardztv Christmas in July challenge.
