The Paper Players color challenge



Hi everyone!
This week at The Paper Players, Ann has a color challenge for us:



I love the colors, they reminded me of the beach, so I used a sail boat die from Die-namics using all 3 colors. Then I added a background with some of SU's designer paper from last years mini.To tie it all together, I added a border with Sahara Sand.

 Now if only I could really BE at the beach!





Paper: SU white, Sahara sand, lost lagoon, crisp cantaloupe, SU retired DP
Ink: SU Lost Lagoon
Stamps: Lawn Fawn's Float my Boat
Dies: Die-namics sailboat, lil inker stitched rectangle and circle,Lawn fawn's stitched journal die
