Fun in the Sun!

Hi hoppers! 

Here's my beach card for the Summer Blog Hop.
 I used Orient Express embossing powder
and Platinum Inka Gold on the sea creatures.

 
The embellishment on the bottom is my "Beachy Sand" sprinkled
on a line of liquid glue.

The shell, fish and starfish look like clay. Very cool card.

Hello Michael,

Wow..another wonderful card in this hop.
I had to come back here again, because you were not awake yet Michael in your part of the world this morning in my time :o)
oohhhh...I have that beachy sand in my cupboard and forgot all about it, could have used it for the challenge-card...ohhh perhaps next time

Love your card and the theme. I live a few blocks from the beach and though I don't go down there often, I love to sit and watch the ocean but hate sand with a passion.

I've never used the "Beachy Sand" but did see it a convention last week.

Mike,
Your card makes me want to go to the beach... it sure is very hot and humid here. How refreshing!
