CASology #214: BEACH

Hello, friends!  It's time for our next CASology cue card!

Here is the inspiration for my card...this is the sun setting over the bay after a lovely day at the beach in Avalon, New Jersey.  We spent the day visiting my best girlfriend and her family at the beach earlier this summer, and this was the view as we drove home that evening. (In case you are concerned, I took this picture but my husband was driving.)

My BFF (i.e., Best Friend Forever) lives a few states away so we don't see each other very often...and I cherish every minute we do get to spend together.

I chose the sentiment for several reasons.  I miss my best girlfriend so, so much.  I also miss summer...sleeping more, running less, enjoying family time.

This card is my farewell to summer...and will be mailed to my BFF straight away.

Stamps Used:
Hero Arts "Silhouette Grass"
Technique Tuesday "Miss You" by Ali Edwards

In order to keep this design clean and simple, I masked off half of the large background stamp before stamping on the card and embossing in white.  Then I masked off each side of the image and added distress inks and spritzed with water.

I really look forward to seeing your interpretation of the cue card this week.  Be sure to link up your BEACH card by noon on Monday (Central time). Check out our Guest Designer and Design Team blogs this week for more beachy inspiration, too!
