June Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti

Well, today it's my turn to share my latest card for the JUNE SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI.  It's a great sketch that I think I may have to use again!

We were in Houston last weekend for a soccer tournament that Lindsie played in.  I'm telling y'all--it was HOT!  I was born there and lived half my childhood there and in Katy.  It's funny how, as a kid, you don't ever remember it being so hot and humid!  At one point during the tournament, there was steam coming from the asphalt walkway by the fields!  Anyway, we had a little time on Sunday before we headed back and were planning on going down to Galveston and visit the beach just for a couple of hours.  The weather turned bad, and we decided against it and came on home.  So I had "missing the beach" on my mind when I made this card the other day. 

I wanted to use some patterned paper, so I started by grabbing my WARM HEART 6x6 pad and found the perfect "beachy" stripes!  I added the LIME GREEN cardstock to the mix as an accent color.  I also pulled out STONE, MIST, SAND, and NAVY cardstock to cut everything out.  I grabbed the octopus from the SEASIDE set and cut him out with the SEASIDE Confetti Cuts, then stamped my sentiment on white.  The SAND DOLLAR worked nicely as one of my circles from the sketch, and the last circular element is a little tag from the GOODY BOX ADDITIONS Confetti Cuts with the little star circle from the SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts set.  Oh and I almost forgot to say that everything is "anchored" by the LACY SCALLOP CIRCLE in the middle of my card!
Come to find out, my card is a great candidate for a couple of other challenges this week as well!  I'm so excited to also play along in the SIMON SAYS STAMP Wednesday Challenge--masculine.  The other challenge is from the HOUSE OF CARDS inspiration challenge, and it happens to be a nautical theme! 

Here's a look at what I used today. Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog 
to see what the other gals have created for today, and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate! We'll be "crabby" if you don't play along!  LOL!

One last thing, don't forget that today is the last day to take advantage of the awesome sale from REVERSE CONFETTI!!!
