Seas The Day…for HSS#291


Happy you stopped back!

A really Cool Inspiration Challenge from

Hand Stamped Sentiments HSS#291


Here is the inspiration!


How Beachy! Love this! It screams Summer!


Here is my Card!



I cracked out all the older, retired stamp sets for this one!

I also cracked out many Ink pads for the background sponging too!


Here is the inside of my Card!



I don’t know why, but the background of the photo booth looks Lavender!

I believe it has something to do with the swirls of colors, tricked the camera’s eye!
