For a friend

This card is actually not for any challenge or sketch whatsoever! Wow! I'm really trying to get going on selling my cards, and I have a lovely friend who has an anniversary coming up and so I offered to make a card for her...she requested a "beach" theme, so this is what I came up with:


I worked for quite awhile on this card, so there is lots I could say about it...but I know I'm far from having a huge readership at this point...so I'll just say that if there's anything in particular you want to know about how I made this card, just ask!! (leave me a comment)
