SAH 129 Inspiration Challenge

Hola Amigas! What do you think about Becky's Inspiration photo. Here is what I think of her photo...I am at the beach in Puerto Rico drinking some cold iced tea or a beverage of my choice...I can feel the sand at my feet the warm sun on my skin and every once in awhile the spray of the ocean on my face...THEN I hear to little monsters coming from behind SCREAMING MAMA MAMA and then I wake up and the bubble POPS! Oh well! So let's begin!
I see Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla I also see the beautiful shells...I like the back one and it reminds me of Becky's card where she used Bravo Burgandy and Pretty in Pink.
So these are the products I will work with...Give or take.
and here is Senor Asqueroso playing with my Linen Thread...On your mark, get set GO!
I am going to start with Crumb Cake as my base and keep layering.
My next layer will be Bravo Burgandy.and then I layered Bridesmaid DSP (which I will color in a second with Pretty in Pink) and then my image will be stamped on Very Vanilla...Where did the time go??? How do I go from 10 minutes to this just by layering and cutting cardstock..and of course Senor Asqueroso is taunting me...Maybe I should tie that linen thread ALL around him...tee hee
I will be using Hostess Level 1 stamp set Because I Care..It's a BEAUTIFUL stamp set...You know you want it so call me or email me and place an order...2 minutes 28 seconds left...
This is what took the rest of my time...I haven't mounted all my clear mounts in this set and I wanted to use the sentiment because I care...
TIME's UP! Here you see I colored my DSP with Pretty in Pink and I shaded the middle of the flowers with Pretty in Pink as well.
TaDa! It is such an AWESOME feeling when you get to create your own sketch...Yes this came from my pretty little head...LOVE IT! I used both Old Olive and Bravo Burgandy ink pads with my blender pen to color in the flowers and the stem...

Very lovely, amiga. I love the layering and distressing. And Sr. A. Lil T won't let me distress things--at least not til I get a card down to 10 minutes!

Great minds run in parallel paths. I can't believe we used the same stamp set and similar colors. How funny. I love your card!
