Bella Blvd and Helmar Adhesive do Summertime

I think I yearn to live by the sea. There is just something so relaxing and serene about the waves lapping up onto the shore. I can dream right? Until that day happens, I can create things that are inspired by the beach and using the new Bella Blvd All Inclusive line, makes that happen easily.

When I received these wonderful papers from Bella Blvd, I had to start inking, cutting and folding. There are just so many great little details and the Alpha + Bits sticker sheets are beyond sweet!!!

I've used this weeks Card Pattern Sketch for the card and I love how this paper compliments the Jute Orange Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. A win win card I think.

For the card I used the Liquid Scrap Dots, 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, Zap dots and Permanent Adhesive runner all from Helmar. If you haven't tried the Liquid Scrapdots, You've gotta find some {there is a vendor list here}

I've entered this card into a couple of challenges as well. Crossing my fingers hehehe
