Summer Warmth in Winter!

Happy Day after Christmas! 

This is my card for our every other month swap for an awesome group of ladies on SCS--the SOTC--Sisters of the Traveling Cards!  Kelly is our hostess for November/December--she posted the following for us to follow:

Since November/December is a very cold winter months for most of you, I thought we'd create some cards to bring some warmth your way! While the rest of the world is buried in snow, let's create some cards with a seashore/ocean theme ~ dip your toes into the ocean, sit on the shore and watch the waves gentle crash to shore, listen to the seagulls flying overhead or watch the sunset over a lovely ocean of blue ... where ever your heart feels happiest at the shore, create it! *Blessings*!

Kelly is right--we are covered in snow in Wisconsin.  We got around 8 inches on Sunday and more yesterday.  So--playing with sunny and bright ink, paper and summertime stamps was fun!

I knew the paper that I wanted to use and looked at a few stamp sets to see which ones fit the challenge.  I inked up a newer Stampin' Up sets and I think the card turned out cute.  I hope Kelly and the other SOTC gals like my card!
