i just love your cards...they are so clean and simple...just the way i like to make them...i like the subtle touch of the flower soft to give a little bit of the sand that extra texture. keep up the great card ideas!

Miss Tami said...

Been thinking about the beach - felt like I was there when I saw this card! The choice of colors was great! I also liked the fact that you used the sand Flower Soft sparingly. I think one could get carried away with it and it would overpower the card. Thanks for sharing!

Liz said...

love it

Rose Ann said...

Coooool card! Love your little castle and the flower soft is perfect as sand

Liz said...

I live in Colorado so using beach scenes on my cards is not something that usually comes to mind, however with family in California..... I dont think sand would be very exciting without this product- I have to have some. Especially because I am a member of Stamps of Life and it is a perfect time to come across this product. I am so grateful for all the great ideas everyone has posted on how to use the flower soft and the stamps I already have.

Colleen said...

Clean and simple card - love it! Now to find some flower soft for myself.
