Clean and Simple Card Challenge

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

I want to try more challenges and thought CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge on SCS might be a fun one to start with, and this week's theme is "Summer Treats".
I love one of the cards that my fellow Pretty Pal and good friend, Nina Dee made, and I have wanted to make a card with zigzags for awhile and here it is!

When I was growing up, my family and I used to go to the beach every summer. My siblings, friends, and I would be in the ocean all day long, and we would all get so tanned! So the summer treats to me is that beach we used to go:-) and these little zigzag stripes I made with the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies are the waves in the ocean:-) 

I used the Summer Starfruit Card Stock, well, because of the name! And it looks fabulous with the blues! 

My Recipe for This Card
