Shelly's Images Terrifically Thrilling Thursday: Vacation Memories

Hi all! It's time for a new challenge at Shelly's Images and this week our theme is "Vacation Memories". The Design Team has used "Island Life" from the Shelly's Images Store. Be sure to stop by the main blog to see what the rest of the team has created.

I used Echo Park's Dots and Stripes Candy Shoppe paper. I really love these papers! I paper pieced the umbrella and colored the rest with ProMarkers. The flatback pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty.

oooooh! This is my first view of the inside and I just LOVE it! Love the sentiment. It is just perfect for how I feel when I am at the beach. And the card itself is just as lovely. My favorite part is the way that you pieced the umbrella. And I love the coloring of the water. Great job!
