At The Beach Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle At The Beach Blog Hop! The rain seems to be leaving us after several days of a deluge and the temps are warming up too! Now I am ready to hit the beach! If you have come by way of the creative Anne's blog then you are at the right place. If not, then you may want to start at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to be eligible to win some fun prizes!

I used a neat technique for the background of my card that I will be showing soon on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday involving tissue paper, glue and stains. So stay tuned!

The girl is from the Whimsical stamp set. I used Ice Sea Glass and Mini Shell Mudd Puddles at the bottom of my card. I added Champagne glitter to the Mudd Puddles and shells to give sparkle!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day! Your next stop is the very talented Shona!
