 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! School has been out for a couple of weeks & summer is in full swing around here. In our house hunting ventures, I've seen more campers, boats & RV's on the road than you can shake a stick at. Can't you just hear all the kids in all the cars.."Are we there, yet?" I grew up in a beach town on the Gulf Coast of Texas & we practically lived on the beach in summer. My dad & granddad used to keep us busy by telling us we could dig to China if we kept at it. It's a wonder I didn't disappear into a big hole. Never got there, but I sure dug some monster holes!

My little Mermaid wannabe has already reached her destination on the beach. She has a well built  Sandcastle behind her, the Sun up above & a mermaid tail in front of her. Life is good! I stamped her onto some sand colored card stock then used Prismacolor pencils to color her. On the background, I stamped the sun & sandcastle w/... (wait for it).... desert sand ink and very lightly colored them w/ Prismas. When pretty much everything but the little girl is sand colored, stamping it on sand colored c/s makes it pretty easy. 
Here's a look at the inside.
 Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
paper: Staples 110# white, sand
ink:  Memento tuxedo black, desert sand

Julie, this is so fun! Love that you did everything in sand but the actual focus image. All your images are wonderfully combined to make a super fun beach card. Lucky you getting to grow up on the coast! I spent a few years on the Florida coast but I was too young to remember it much - darn! Happy Friday. Hugz

Ha! Too funny, we used mostly the same stamps but we have two way different cards! I love that! I love your mermaid girl front and center. Very cute card!
