Stampin' B's --- Beach Scene

This week,  Anne with the Stampin' B's Design Team asked that we do a beach scene and include sand-real or stamped. I used Flower Soft (sand) for mine.
I'm using a Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamp set called Seaside for my image and sentiment. I think it is really sweet. I colored with Copic and used a 'punch around the page' by Martha Stewart called called Beach Shells and a crab punch by Martha Stewart.
We hope you'll join us this week for challenge #118 and link your card or project to the inlinkz tool here.
