Another try at Clean And Simple! I don't know if I have it in me to make a simple, pretty card!
I love it when I see others! I try and try! But I guess I depend on embellishments and such!

I tried twice to meet the requirements of The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.


I think the masculine part was making it difficult for me, too.
Any how...here it is!

  I was trying to send the message Cowabunga! Relax! Things will get Better! Surf's In!

It was made with the RELAX (Verve) stamp set. I paper pieced the surfboards and water. All the paper is from the Rusted Sun(Heidi Larsen) collection. I cut out the flip flops and swim trunks from this paper, too. I made the sand with the Flat Bottom Cloud dies (MFT Die-namics). After I cut them out, I sponged them with SU Crumb Cake ink. Hopefully this looks like sand. The flag and sentiment is stamped with Sentiment Flags (Lil Inkers). I rolled the flag and swim trunks to make it look like they waving in the wind! 

Thanks for looking! 

Paper: Rusted Sun (Heidi Larsen); Kraft (PTI)
Stamps: Relax (Verve); Sentiment Flags (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Almost Expresso (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Flat bottom clouds (MFT);Twine
