Today's card has been an experiment.  I bought some Mudd Puddles at the scrapbook convention and tried it out.  If you don't know what this is, it is sand or sand like material with glue in it and you spread it on to use as sand in a scene.  I think I could use a little more practice but, it was fun.  Also, I used an older tutorial that I got off of Pinterest on making chalk clouds.  The tutorial is by Krista Smith and it was really good.  I also used a piece of burlap that I got at the show too.

My sweet little image is by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary and she is called Beach Baby.  I also used a sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge.
