At The Beach The Paper Players Challenge PP647

   July 2, 2023 

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players

The amazing LeAnne is our hostess this week!  She has a fabulous theme challenge for all of us!  How timely is this Beach Challenge?  So many people are at the beach this week for the holiday weekend!  So anything "BEACH" goes.  Have fun! 

I am a huge beach lover!  Are you?  My dear friend's mother's Memorial Service was this weekend and I made this card for her.  I used the SU seashell embossing folder to create the background.  I used Coastal Cabana card stock.  I used the die to this set and cut out one kraft seashell.  I sponged it with white ink and added lots of Wink of Stella to make it shine.  I added a twine bow around the panel.  A few pearls were added to complete my card.  I chose not to add a sentiment.  I thought the front was perfect the way it was.  I wanted to write a personal note inside.
