A Little Note!

Hello sweet friends! I had a quiet morning the other day as Max snoozed following our long walk and the towels tumbled in the dryer. So I got my crafty on and made this simple card for the Fusion Challenge called {The Beach House}. When I saw their inspiration photo a few days ago I had an idea that began brewing in my mind and this is what became of it!


   

I knew that I would use my pretty Hydrangea (Inkadinkado) I bought while vacationing at Cape Cod a few years ago. I've mentioned here before that I fell in love with Nantucket. The hydrangeas in full bloom, those pretty little salt box houses and the cobbled stoned Main Street just stole my heart away! I think if I had a beach house, I would decorate it with that memory using soft aqua, white and pale buttery yellow...mmmm...a dreamy thought. 

This was an easy peasy card using both the sketch and the photo. I snugged the two embossed DPs together and die cut the small MFT doily (thanks Larissa!) from them as well as one from white cardstock. The soft yellow DP is actually from the packaging for the pearls! After adhering the paper to my card base, I stamped the sentiment (Endless Creations) then added my hydrangea to the doily with a foam dot. A few pearls and it was a wrap!
Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to stop by. I know there are a lot of card blogs to visit, I appreciate that you made me one of your stops! ~Lisa
