Just Add ... the Beach for JAI 109

JAI 109

I didn't intend on entering any challenges for a while but some gorgeous ribbon that I bought today got me in the mood to create a Beach Themed Card for Just Add Ink's 109th Challenge.

After scrummaging through my craft stash I came across some very neglected punches as well as a brand new one to create this card.

Here's What I Used -
Stamp: It's Your Day (SU)
Ink: Marina Mist, Rose Red (SU)
Card Stock: Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red (SU), Square Natural Card (non-SU)
Accessories: Patterned Paper from artee supplies called Coral Bay Beachside, White Mesh Ribbon, Small Shell, Stamping Sponge, Dimensionals, Basic Pearl, Branch Punch (Martha Stewart), Shell Punches by Paper Shapes and Carl Carta Craft, Cork Board, Fish Punch from Meadow Micro Makers (Creative Memories), Word Window Punch (SU)

It was fun to make a Summery card before the Autumn weather sets in.

Don't forget to check out the DT's awesome beach inspired cards. There's such a variety of ideas. Thanks for stopping by.

Bronwyn this is a beautiful beach card. I love that ribbon it so much looks like netting and your colour choice of coral embelishments are lovely. Makes me think of some of the lovely underwater photos Gary has taken when diving. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week, see you soon!

Wow, Bron - this is VERY beautiful! Love the soft, subtle backdrop to the brightly coloured 'beach finds'. Great use of punches, ribbon and colour.

Hey Bron, how wonderfully beachy is this!!Seriously I feel like I'm looking right into a little gorgeous scene at the bottom of the sea. That ribbon is so evocative of coral :)

Hi,
I am wondering where I might find that "mesh ribbon" the card is so cool and that ribbon is just great. I am from the states so not sure where to get it.

Love your card Bronwyn
