The tide will turn ...

My 1st card this evening is for the current challenge over at Off The Wall Craftiness (#57).  Love the inspirational photos provided by OTWC.  The theme for this challenge is "Create a Beach Scene".

I recently won a couple Digi Stamps from Pattie's Creations over at Crafters Digital Art Center for a card I created.  I'm using one of the Digi's I chose for this challenge.
The Digi Stamp is called Allie Bath House and is absolutely perfect for this challenge.  I printed this lovely up on Neenah Solar White, colored it with my copics, then fussy cut it into several different pieces.  Next was to trim some Neenah Cream and create the sky with distress ink.  I distressed the scrap with Antique Linen, Wild Honey & Vintage Photo, then tore it into pieces, and then distressed that part also to create my sand.  Then I laid the different pieces from the scene on my backdrop.  Cut the Hot Air Balloon from some PP, popped it on, then stamped the sentiment from my Teeny Bikini Wilson Designs stamps.
I put the teeny weenie polka dot bikini on the inside of the card.
Hope my design inspires you to go forth and create.
