Masculine Thank You

A friend of mine needed a thank-you card for her daughter's (male) rowing coach and what better than this relaxing beach scene?  I really love this image, especially for the dreaded Man Card!!  :)  What's better is that this is perfect for this month's Dirty Dozen theme!!!  

I started with a base of chocolate chip and layered with white and some MME DSP and added another layer of MME DSP.  I stamped the image from Flourishes Beach Life set and coloured with markers and a blender pen and matted with chocolate chip cut with the deckled rectangle nestabilities.  To finish I added two strands of natural hemp and popped up the sentiment from JustRite's Just a Note set.

Stamps - Just a Note (JustRite), Beach Life (Flourishes)
Paper - Chocolate Chip, White, MME
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Chocolate Chip
Accessories - Markers, Blender Pen, Dauber, Deckled Edge Rectangle Nestabilies, Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, Natural Hemp, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
