So this is the picture that really made me feel happy! Loved the tall palm trees on this poster!
After being inspired, try to figure out what exactly about that poster, picture, sketch, layout, et al that really impresses you and run with it... I was really inspired by the palm trees but couldn't imagine them on a card... I loved the blue sky and the sand was my take on the boardwalk. So I added a little of that... the ocean is solid cardstock that I tore to give it a wavy edge and the scalloped "sand" is my interpretation of a boardwalk. This is the foundation of the card and grounds it.
After the inspiration I laid it out on my gypsy using Life is a Beach. Like this:
flip buttons located under the advanced tab and it is in the middle. You can flip horizontally or vertically but you have to flip all of your design that is pre-grouped in the cart... I did that with the trees and with the palm fronds! I wanted my trees to pop!...
Now it is time to lay out all your colors on your mat! That looks like this...
