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!
