No, I'm not on vacation in Hawaii, but one can always dream!   : )

Today's card was created especially for my design team post at Paper Fashions, Etc.  The beautiful palm trees are from the digital stamp set titled Beachscapes.  (see photo below)  Please visit their website for all the details on this terrific printable set! 

There is a Beachscapes sentiment set too that coordinates with this perfectly.  I chose to use an "Aloha" stamp from my stash on the front of this card.    The cardstock is wild wasabi and I've stamped the front with linen and then the left side with the print pattern background.  What?!  No designer paper?  Can you believe it?

To embellish, I've used a miniature antique brass clip, a brown button and bakers twine to tie it all together. The image was colored with copic markers and the edges distressed with Versafine vintage sepia ink. 

The inside is stamped with a sentiment I've had forever and never think to use.  I thought it would be perfect for this island themed creation.  I guess I did use some designer paper on the inside.  It's a piece of torn  "sand" paper.  : )

Mahalo for stopping by! 

May your day be filled with relaxing sunsets,
cool drinks and sand between your toes!

Pam, I love it! Especially the message inside. It's a perfect wish for anyone.
I LOVE sand between my toes and in my hands and underneath my feet and just about anywhere my skin can touch it!

Such a tranquil card! Love the sand paper on the inside and the clip attached to the sentiment on the front of the card.
