I decided that all my cards for this month's blog hop will be cards other than a standard A2 card.  My card for today is a Side Step Card.  I Googled "sea scene" to get the picture of the ocean for my tall section and used some sandy patterned paper for the two steps. 
 
 
The stamped images and sentiment are from the stamp set Silly Shells.
 
 
 
 
Be sure to check out all the cards created by the Design Team members today.  And comment often for more chances to win a free stamp set.
