Sketches at the Shore [SS]

Happy Tuesday!
Tuesday means…'s time for another weekly challenge at
This week the theme is 
That makes things easy, right?! 
I've really been wanting to use the Sketches at the Shore set but I just couldn't decide which scene I liked best because…they are all great.
So here is what I did for this week's challenge.
A clean and simple SET of cards.
I used colored pencils to do the shading.
Each card has a different sentiment.
The sentiments are separate so you can mix/match any way you like.
A slightly different shaded matte.
A bit of burlap in each corner.
A twine string and tattered edge.
Clean, Simple, Beautiful…all set for summer!

Those fibers go great with the image, reminds me of the mats some beaches rent.
