Breezy Beach Scene

At Splitcoast Stampers, the Inspiration Challenge is a fun Pinterest Board all about placemats and tablescapes.  Here is the picture I chose:


I just love the breezy drapes, the starfish, and the name of the blog it comes from (between naps on the porch).  I totally recommend checking out the blog, http://betweennapsontheporch.net/, Susan does the most amazing things with tables and hosts a tablescape challenge every Thursday.  One day,,,,,


I sponged my scene and stamped the DRS Designs Splatter Background on the sand to make it more realistic.  I used some cheesecloth for my breezy drapery and used the starfish from the 4-in-1 seashells stamp as my tieback.  I had to cover a little blue smudge so I stamped the Small Line Happy Birthday and punched it out. 

I have been making a lot of beach cards lately - must be time to actually go the beach!

  5. What a fantastic inspiration piece and resulting card! I can feel the ocean breeze blowing through your little window as I sit at that beautifully set table and wait for someone to pour me a tall one and feed my face! SLAP! Oops!, thanks for waking me up - I almost drifted off for a minute :) Seriously, this is one awesome little card! You took the challenge well and really put me into a seaside mood at the same time :)
