A little more bliss

The challenge at splitcoast stampers in the Stamping Bella forum this week was to use a Stamping Bella stamp to depict what you do to get away from it all. I used beachabella because a day a the beach brings total relaxation for me. I also combined this with a color and sketch challenge.

The sketch is from Caardvarks. The colors are for the chocolate and red challenge at Stampin for the Weekend.

Here is my card:

Stamp: Stamping Bella beachabella
Paper: K&Co. Wild Saffron
Accents: Ribbon; button
Tools: Fiskars treading water punch


  1. Fabulous summery card! This bella stamp is awesome. I love the gorgeous paper and the ribbon.

  2. Brilliant card and I love that image! The beaches tend to be a bit colder here in the UK but there is still nothing like being by the sea to ease the mind :)
    Thank you for joining us at stampin' for the weekend and good luck with the challenges.
