Birthday By The Sea


Hi!  I did find some time on this rainy, lazy Sunday to sit at my craft desk.  I had a masculine birthday card to make and we all know how much I love that!  lol  They are always such a challenge for me!  I knew the recipient has a boat so I thought I'd go the coastal route for his card.  I colored up Beach Path from Shelly's Images.  Then I added some glossy accents to the path and covered it with Flower Soft in Sand.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the mat and then mounted the whole thing on top of a piece of burlap.  The seashell paper is from K&Company.  The only other embellishments I added were a real seashell (Don't tell Kayne; I "borrowed" it from his collection!) and more Martha Stewart punches (branch, sand dollar, starfish).  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set called Occasional Quotes and is cut with a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One die.



I am off to work on my next project which happens to be the next Simply B Stamps 13 Day of Halloween challenge.  The deadline is tomorrow so I'll see you then...  Thanks for stopping in and have a lovely evening!

Markers used: Copics (E31, E34, BG000, BG0000, YG91, YG93, N0, N2).

This is just the card to give such an uplift on a grey Monday morning in Autumn Regan, so I would imagine that the birthday boy will love having your sea-scene indoors. I love all your beach themed embellishments and the burlap behind your image...all of which complement your coastal scheme so beautifully. Good luck in our challenge this week.

Hi Regan - this card is so delicious! It reminds me of holidays I have been on in really far away places. The colours are just right, I can almost smell the see just looking at it. I totally love it.

Thank you so much for entering it into the OSAAT challenge this week, I hope we see more of your creations soon.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx DT member
