The beach fixes everything

Hello there crafty friends!
I was having a bit of play time in my craft room yesterday
and created this card:

I used an acrylic block to 'stamp' my background.
I added a few different Distress Inks onto it, spritzed with water,
then smooshed it onto my watercolor paper panel.
Once dried, I trimmed to size, stamped the sentiment, matted,
and used a dimensional sticker that worked perfectly.

 Here's what it looked like before adding the sticker:

That sticker is awesome. It came with the sand, and that tiny chain
on the bow of the boat is real!

That's all for now. Gotta go and get some laundry cleaned. Ugh.
Have a wonderful day!
