Relax - Sunny Day Crafting Challenge

It's time for a new challenge over at Sunny Day Crafting.  The project is based on this photo.

To me this image said vacation to me which makes me think of a warm tropical beach somewhere.

For my card I started with a piece of watercolor card stock cut at 4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  I decided to create a sunset background for my palm trees.  I used mustard seed, ripe persimmon, and rusty hinge Distress Ink to create my sunset background. for the sand that the palm trees are sitting on, I used my Antique Linen Distress Crayon and a water brush.  Once I had the background where I wanted it, I adhered my palm tree border to my card base. The tree's were cut at 5" using my Cricut Explore.  To finish my card I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo black ink and attached the watercolor paper to my orange card stock card base.  Thanks for stopping by.
