Tic Tac Toe Challenge #074

I'm finding myself rather hooked on the TicTacToe challenge boards lately and the current board is no exception. 

I was once again drawn to the right column, this time featuring Adventure, Beach and Palm Tree.  I happened to have one stamp and die set that covered all the bases.

Because there is so much to this stamp set I decided to expand the real estate by trying my hand at a slimline card.  I began by stamping and die cutting the individual events.  I then stamped the beach sand and created a very soft ink blended sky.  After that it was just a matter of assembling the scene.  I added a bit of soft brown edging to add to the vintage feel as well as few soft birds in the distant sky.  As my final touch I added a retirement sentiment because ...  just how perfect is that?

There happens to be another beachy challenge going on right now on another blog.  With any luck I'll be back in a day or two with another scenic card to share.

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!
