Coastal Romance

Hello!  Just a quick post to share a card I made for a request.  The recipients are getting married in CA so I opted for a coastal theme.  Pink is one of their wedding colors and I was impressed that I was able to incorporate it into this creation.  The sea and anything coastal scream blue and white and tan to me so using pink was going a bit against the grain, but I rose to the occasion.  The pink "wave" paper is from My Mind's Eye - Happy Day.   The image is Beach Path from Shelly's Images and is colored with Copics.  I sponge inked the sky.  I used assorted Martha Stewart punches and added flowers and pearls.  The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado set.  I stamped it on a sponged Ribbon Banner die cut (Spellbinders).  The mat behind the image was cut with the Crown Circles Nestabilities, also from Spellbinders.  I based my card on the current Sketch Saturday layout (#266) but I did substitute a circle for the square image panel.

 Hope everyone has something fabulous planned for the weekend!  Or maybe no plans at all!  That can be equally as fabulous!  We may end up at a lake again.  This pattern of heat and humidity we're in is relentless!

Thanks for popping in and enjoy your day!

Markers used: Copics (E31, E33, R81, YG91, YG93, BG10, BG70).
