IBSIC #13 Entry

This card is for this week's IBS challenge:  
Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #13.  

I found this weeks challenge particularly inspiring; the picture just pulled me in and left me wishing I were there.  I absolutely had to make a beach scene!  

If you look closely at my card you can see: some light clouds off in the distance in the background; the beautiful sparkle in the frothy whitecaps of the waves rolling in; and the tangle of beach grass made from very thinly cut strips of cardstock. 

Here is the inspirational photo (entry must use colors from the photo):
