Weekend at the Beach

This card was inspired by a long weekend my husband and I just took to Morro Bay and Monterey Bay and our drive up the coast.  What a lovely trip, and the weather was just wonderful!  I always feel at home by the sea, so when I saw today's Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers, CC-374, Pacific Point, Certainly Celery and Crumb Cake, the first thought that came to mind was a beach scene.  I love this stamp from innovativestampcreations.com called Friendship II.  The sketch - SSS157 - is from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog.  I colored the image with Stampin' Up pastels.  The brads are from My Mind's Eye.  tfl
