A Sand and Beach Fusion!

Hello Friends!
Today's Card is for the Fusion Challenge!
It is the Challenge to use the
inspiration picture, or the sketch
or both!
I chose both! I used the sketch AND
the Sand and Beach theme!
Here is the Challenge!
Theme: Sand and Beach
Here is my Card!

I am in a Beach mode right now!
When my BFF was in town...we went to the beach!
I am so going to take the Grand-girls when they get here!
The 'Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder' (TIEF)
 is so great to make the wave marks in the sand!
I also brought in the Wood Textures DSP
 to pick up on the wood in the inspiration picture!
Here is the inside of my Card!

Also brought the Wood Texture DSP to the inside...a
'beach washed'  look on the wood!
Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
The signs in the inspiration picture say...Sand, Beach, Surf, Relax...Nailed it!
This is where I want to the beach!
Here is a close up of the 'Chairs'!

The envelope's chair is a two-step stamping process...Love it!
I also used the 'New' Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets for the white chair!
It is the second time I have use them and it does have a bit of a learning curve...but
I think for intricate dies it is a big game changer!
Here are the items used to make my Card:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
Whisper White-card base, chair on card front
Sahara Sand-bottom mat
Crumb Cake-top mat
Chocolate Chip-beverage on card front
Wood Textures DSP Stack-front strip and inside strip
Stamp Sets:

So Many Shells-greeting
Colorful Seasons-chair on envelope
Classic Stampin' Ink Pads:
Chocolate Chip-greeting, inside sentiment, frame on envelope chair
Sahara Sand-liner on chair on envelope
Whisper White Craft Ink-sponged on the top 'waves'
Big Shot-die cutting and embossing machine
Ruffled Dynamic TIEF-waves on both top mats
Seasonal Layers Thinlits-white chair and beverage on card front
Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets-to adhere white chair to card front
Mini Glue Dots-to adhere drink next to chair
Here is my Card again!
Yup! Need to make another Beach run! Don't you?
Nothing beats rubbing your feet in the sand and taking deep breaths
of ocean air! There is healing in that! I believe that with ALL my heart!
Here is Today's 'C' note!
Until the next Post...Blessings and Sandy Feet to you ALL!

Lovely neutrals on your card Cheryl - the clean, crisp white of the chair really pops against the background. Love how you've done the inside too! Thanks for playing along at Fusion!
