Off to the seaside....

A friend is moving next week, changing her life in the city for a life in Cornwall, by the the sea.  I wanted my CAS card to reflect the new life her family is going to have....and what a perfect time to move to the seaside!

The beach hut is a Joanna Sheen Signature die.  I cut it out twice in cream and pink and snipped off the pink roof and base and stuck over the cream beach hut.  I love how the door opens on the die cut. The sea is Memory Box 'Oceana Border' die cut. I used gold glitter card for the sand and the sky is mottled blue patterned card.

I'm joining in the following challenges:

This is such a clever card! I would've never thought to combine a beachy theme with a "congrats on your new home" theme, but you really made it work beautifully! I love the idea of moving next to the sea and I'm sure anyone would appreciate this quaint scene after they've gone through all the hard work of moving. Your card also has such a great clean and professional look to it-- really striking! Thank you for your inventive interpretation of our theme and for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
