Watercolored Beach Greeting Card

Summer Greetings!   Today I am excited to share this beach-y watercolor greeting I created with distress inks.   The Sentiment I used is to remind myself and the person I was making the card for to take time to get away during these trying times. Even if the get away is only to your own garden.
