And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Hello friends!  I needed a retirement card for my sister-in-law and the "Ways to Use It Challenge" on Splitcoaststampers today to include something sea worthy on your creation was the perfect place to start.  I can think of no better place to relax than at the ocean!

Creative Nugget:  The inspiration for my card design came from last week's CAS(E) This Sketch.  The waves from the Master of the Sea stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps were white embossed on a piece of Neenah Solar Crest card stock.  Oxide inks were sponged on and spritzed with water for the background.  The Ocean Paradise scene was colored with Copic Markers and a few nautical images also from the Master of the Sea were added.  The sentiment was white embossed on a vellum banner to finish the card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More #247 - Make Your Mark
CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS #226
Simply Create Too Challenge #128 - Summer Fun
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Let's Take a Vacation
Mod Squad Challenge - Colorful Creations

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you've been inspired!
