Now for my card...

Today I'm keeping with the Stampendous weekly theme of "By the sea"  and used the Seaside Chair Perfectly Clear Set. It is a great set to use for summer and comes with several different sayings. 
1.  The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with pencils.  
2.  The sand is Mushroom Embossing Powder which was sprinkled on and heated from underneath so it wouldn't blow off.  
3.  The white part of the water is Crystal Micro Glitter that was glued on using a Zig 2 Way marker.
4.  After the panel was glued to kraft colored paper, it was glued onto a white card and on top of three thin pieces of ribbon with the same thicker ribbon tied into a knot and glued to the bottom, I love the look of matching ribbon in different sizes!  
5.  To glue everything in place 3-in-1 glue from Beacon Adhesives was used.

Now take a look at what the other Designers have for you today!

Love the addition of ribbon on this card. I really struggle with what to do with ribbon but I like this idea.

Anything summer/beachy is so fun! I like that you used the ribbon behind the image. It really highlights the image. I live in WI.

Beautiful scene for summer. Love the design and the fun way you added the sand and the water. I'm from right here in the good old USA, in Des Moines, Iowa. I'm a long way from the beach but I sure can dream.
