Come Away with Me!

I made this card for the color challenge over on Split Coast which, not having the SU colors listed, I interpreted as orangey, bluey and browney! (and I know there are a few rogue colors snuck in there on my DP too!! LOL!!!)

I stamped right on my patterned designer paper so I hit the dessert option too!
I chose my design and stamps for Tuesdays Tea Party challenge on Split Coast - which was to show 'Pure relaxation at the beach' - while we are drinking tea!
After stamping and distressing - I spritzed my card with gold perfect pearls mixed with water - so there is a shimmer on this card IRL. I also swiped some Mustard Seed Distress Ink down the center to give it a sunny glow!
My stamps are all by Waltzingmouse , the waves, bike, surf board and skateboarder from Free Spirit Boy and the sentiment and tea cup from Afternoon Tea.
My beach card will be going postal to Elaine who is ill and dreams of the ocean. You can check out the whole teaparty story here including a link to Elaine's story if you'd like to send her a card too!

Excellent use of images and colour, I love that this is one layer-ish and still has lots of elements!
