SHOPPING OUR STASH #349 - Headed to the Beach

Hello and welcome crafty peeps!
It's time for another fun challenge at

This week we are heading to the beach!
(perhaps because we are ALL SICK OF WINTER HANGING ON!!
We'd like to see your beach themed projects!
Here's the card I made: 

I did a bit of paper piecing with this cute swimsuit image.
I even added some brads to the suits. Bonus!
The main panel was embossed, and I liked the debossed side so much I
flipped it over. I love the cute punny sentiment that came with the image. 

Now it's your turn. We'd love to see your beach themed projects linked
up at Shopping Our Stash! Looking for more ideas? Simply visit
the blogs of my teammies to see their take on the challenge.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you have a great day!

  10. So sorry for this late comment Chris, been super busy this week.
    But I adore this super sweet, fabulously paper pieced bathing suits, make me wish I was on a warm sandy beach, getting some much needed suntan.
    Love the embossed background and the sentiment so fabulously punny.
    Awesome card, my dear.
