Here Comes the Sun

This year my husband and I decided that we were going to enjoy our beautiful beaches here along the Gulf of Mexico.   So we wake up at our normal time and head out around 9ish, and then stay until the beach starts crowding up around 11.
 
So in celebration of the beautiful sunshine-y days and beach season I thought I'd create a fun card in honor of how much I love this time of year.  This adorable file is from Marjorie Ann Designs and is called Hit the Beach.
 
For the sand (which is actually snow white on our beaches) I used a piece of torn sandpaper.  This gives a bit of texture to the card.  The only downside I have found with using sandpaper is that I have difficulty sometimes with getting my other pieces to adhere.  But the work is definitely worth the outcome.
 
The stamped sentiment is from the Cardz TV Stamps set titled Summer Fun.
 
Now I'm off to enter this card into the sunglasses challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas
