I recently took a class on how to make ocean views. We were encouraged to use elements that were nautical. I made several cards that were views of the beach from the ocean. I got home and saw a time share commercial. That Miami time share looked mighty inviting! I will have a tutorial on how to make this card later in the week.

This card looks like a Take 10 magazine card to me. I used cardstock scraps for the strips.
