SPDSS51 - Seaside Wishes and Salty Kisses

Is it summer yet?   Just kidding - but I sort of feel like the weather is teasing me a bit - typical Chicago.  One day its 80 degrees, and the next it's 45!  Some days I don't even know how I should dress!   I've said it before - the biggest part I love about crafting - I make the weather here!  LOL!  Total control!!  Today I'm playing with the Seaside Wishes set from Sugar Pea Designs!  This one always gets me thinking of vacation.  That's my happy place!

It's Wednesday so it's time for a new sketch at Sugar Pea Designs! The big winner ($75 gift certificate to Sugar Pea Designs) is selected monthly, but we have  a new sketch for you every Wednesday.  So how does that work?  It means you have fresh inspiration and your choice os sketches to work with since you only have to play along with one of the challenges to be entered to win.  The more challenges you play along with - the more entries you have for the prize. 
I took a few liberties with the sketch - remember they are a guideline - not set in stone.  I substituted the waves and sand for the strip of washi on the sketch.   I added some glossy accents to the water and sprinkled some chunky clear glitter to add some sparkle. 

 Instead of the banner shape on the top I added a little button with a string bow. 
The scatter of stars on the sketch are now seashell sequins - of course I had to add a little pearl inside - wouldn't you just love to find one of those?   The border along the top is from Pretty Pink Posh.  I used a corner chomper to round the corners. 
My image took up most of the design so I stamped my sentiment along the side.  I stamped in brown ink vs. my usual black so it would blend in more with the soft colors.
 I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored everything with Copic Markers.  I gave the background a soft peachy color, and added a few dots to the sandy beach.
Need a little more inspiration?  Check out more designs from the Challenge Design Team!
