Less Is More - Sand

Good morning LIMettes!
How are you? I have had such a busy week this week, with various things going on...I'll be glad to slow down....eventually!

So when I woke up this morning I did my usual thing and grabbed my phone to check out this week's challenge at Less Is More before I got out of bed!


 Hmmmm....I will be honest and say that it didn't really rock my boat! Or did it? ;) Here is what I came up with...

I was going to be obvious and use Sahara Sand ink or card, as that was the first thing that popped into my head, but when I got it out it didn't look all that 'sandy' to me! So I went for a beachy theme and used Crumb Cake card as it looked a bit more realistic. I stamped the the boat in Soft Suede onto vellum.

The other colours are Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze, both retiring this weekend along with the fab Need For Speed stamp set :(

Cardstock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue
Stamps - Need For Speed, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink - Soft Suede
