Hi peeps! Still struggling with my mojo, but I am persevering! Today's card is for the Global Design Project sketch challenge (love things in threes!) and one I haven't done in a while, the Just Us Girls challenge of "beach":
So I knew I had a pretty seashell stamp set around somewhere....I searched and searched and finally found it, because I knew it would look lovely with this pretty little print from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP package:
I stamped the shell in Smoky Slate and used blends to color it in...they really are a dream to work with! I added a sentiment and some layers for the horizontal piece, ending with some sequins and a little silver thread bow. And you can't see it, but the shell was highlighted with a Wink of Stella pen! My only "wish I hadn't done it" was the embossing on the card base; I always forget that the Seaside embossing folder really weakens the cardstock (should have used Thick!) and I think it detracts from the patterned paper...but it's done and maybe I will do another one...later!
Here are a few more birthday cards:
This gorgeous card from my teammate Laurie is FULL of sparkle!!
Billie's card is embossed in a fun way!
I love the colors and elements that Kristie used!
And Renita's colors and plaids are gorgeous! Thanks, ladies! I have many more so keep on the lookout!
Queen of the pool!
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
