Michelle Zindorf *Day 2*

Get ready for a trip to the beach. Here is that unique card by Michelle that I was telling you about yesterday:Can you believe that Michelle created that background using her inkpads directly on the paper? You have got to check out the tutorial HERE. This card just screams "SUMMER!" I love the black sillouette of the palm tree and the palm branches along the top. Finally, the way Michelle included the sentiment is a fab use of the Top Note die cut.
Here is my take. I had lots of fun following Michelle's tutorial to create my own beachy background. Unfortunately, I did not have the Stampin' Spots, so I used VersaMagic cat eye chalk inks instead.Thanks for looking! See you tomorrow!
