Use up your scraps with these bright designs!

I was inspired by a number of fun beach towels I saw at our pool this weekend. By simply using up some of my scrap pieces of cardstock and adding a few accessories, I made these vibrant cards. Enjoy!

Colors used from our BoatHouse Collection(TM) Cardstock:

Brighton Beach White
Black Granite
Pear Salad
Dill Pickle
Think Pink
Pool Party

The colors of this card were based on a striped beach towel I saw.
The pool blue adds a nice contrast.

My daughter loves this one. It's all the rhinestones that act as
the flower centers that make this card really sparkle in the light!

I saw a zebra striped beach towel and just had to make a card
using these fun stripes. I cut them free-hand and attached the
Black Granite stripes to white cardstock. It really makes an exciting background.


A few circle punches and you've got a fun pattern for this card!

Torn pieces of cardstock add texture to the front of this card.
Add flowers with rhinestones for a focal point.

More zebra stripes and more rhinestones - this one is my favorite!
