My card is kind of symbolic of all those things - the sahara sand (for the beach), white (for the white hot summer sun), the insects (in this case butterflies) flitting over the grass (for innocence) and the passion of childhood dreams.
Materials I used to make this card:
Stampset: Inspired by Nature, Great Friend
Cardstock: Velum, Sahara sand, whisper white, chocolate chip and Kiwi kiss.
Ink: Kiwi kiss, chocolate chip, sahara sand.
Accessories: Silver brads, wide oval, punch, distressing tool.
