At the Beach

Hi Friends.  Such a nice day today, warm and sunny.  Took a long walk along the
Niagara River today with the Pup.  She met a tea cup something, only about 4 pounds tops, little curly white dog,  Keeya was enchanted by her, I think because she was so little.  Next dog she met was a Great Dane.  He was also young, so they were wanting to play.  The big and the little extremes today.

My card today is for the challenge at Saturated CanaryIt's challenge 42, All Things Bright and Beautiful with an optional color scheme, which I followed also.

 
I used this darling digi -Toes in the Sand for my card.

 
I colored the sand then used Fran-tage Embossing Powder.
Two small real sea shells were added and a star fish sticker.
 

 
Card Recipe
 
Card base Aqua textured card stock.  Dotted designer papers are
from Hobby Lobby.  The Fuchsia layer (looks red in the picture) is textured

Sorry I have missed some of your latest posts, but I have been away. Love what you have done with this sweet image from SC! The weather is still being a bit fickle around here, so a warm day on the beach sounds quite inviting to these old bones!

Sue, what a darling image and I love the tan you gave her. Fabulous job on the beach sand and all of your little embellishments are just great. I would have love to been along on your walk with Keeya to see her reactions to those two dogs. They bring so much fun to our lives, don't they?
