Seaside Window

I needed a birthday card for my BIL tomorrow and decided to browse the gallery of Bonnie (aka Bon2stamp), the Featured Stamper on SCS this week, for my inspiration. She had a window card HERE that spurred me to create this beach scene. My BIL and his wife vacation every year at Myrtle Beach, so thought he would love a beachy card.  Had to dig into my SU "archives" for this oldie but goodie set.  Colored it with Copics and die cut some grass using 2 different shades of green in my scrap pile.  Some jute twine and a silver charm topped it off.  I used a cloud stencil to sponge some Soft Sky ink onto the sky, but it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Lighthouse (SU)
PAPER: Neenah Solar Crest White, X-Press It Blending Card
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky
ACCESSORIES: Square Lattice EF by SU; Grand Madison die, Grand flower box die and Grassland border die - all by Poppystamps; Jute twine, Silver charm, Copics
