Sea/Beach - CCC #66

Hai friends.  Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all have had a wonderful week.  Lucky for me this one has been pretty quiet.  Yeah!  I have been spending some time cleaning up and organizing my stamp room.  It's not done yet and will probably take a lot more time.

Meanwhile, I have another card for Creative Card Crew.   This time our theme is Sea/Beach.  At first glance, this may not look like Sea or Beach, but the last time I was visiting my daughter in California, we drove up the Pacific Highway to a restaurant on Laguna Beach.  There were all kinds of beautiful flowers growing around the restaurant including roses.  The two strips on the side remind me of the sandy beach.  The flowers in her hair remind me of sea anemones.
