One of the first cards I made was this "get well" card for one of my best friends. The background is vellum paper with the really nice wavy pattern that looks like the ocean. I cut the palm trees using the Life's a Beach cricut cartridge and than used some green ink to sponge around the edges of the palm leaves. I also used beige paper as the sand and than added some sparkly glitter along the edge. :-) Love sparkly stuff!!
