Do you like the beach?

I love the smells and sounds of the ocean however the only beaches I  see
 are along the Colorado River that flows thru this valley. In our area it is
the dividing line between California and Arizona.It brings a bit of green to 
our otherwise HOT dry desert, and summer is on it way...110 degrees today!
So onto our FOSTV Challenge today, it's a Beach Theme....
I have used a stripe with colors that reminds me of the water, wet sand, 
foam, shells and sea weed on the beach. After stiching and distressing
 the edges a bit I added it to the aqua.  The image is a partial from the
 Island Life Set. I stamped it in Stampin Up Going grey for a muted 
look. A little cheesecloth behind to mimic some nets and a piece
 of cork with a starfish attached. The Sentiment is also 
from the Island Life Set.

Winner takes home this lovely Set so join in the fun!!

I'd say you captured the feel of the beach quite well! Your beautiful beachy color palette and soft textures make me wishing I was there! What a beauty! :)

Lovely card. Love the cheesecloth netting. I have lived about an hour from beaches most of my life. Did not occur to me that some people did not have that privilege until we lived in New Mexico for a few years. LOL
Hope you stay cool this summer.
