Beachy Birthday


I made a birthday card for my SIL with this unknown stamped image I had in my stash. I lightly colored the image with pastel pink and blue Copics, and added some pink and blue pearls and gems for fun. The papers are all from a Graphic 45 paper pad called Tropical Travelogue, including the word "beach." I used Lil Inkers stitched rectangle dies along with a SNSS sentiment done in Island Indigo ink. My SIL loves the beach so this one will make her smile I'm sure.

I'm sharing this over at Marks Finest Papers Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #271 which is to create a beach scene.

Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!

I dont't understand who is "SIL", but sure she will appreciate this gorgous vintage card! Love the details of the pearl, it's a catch-eye and matches so well with the blue paper and the sentiment! The Graphic 45 papers are perfect for this vintage look! Great work!

I so love this seaside image and the lovely soft colouring. The papers you used compliment it so well and the pearls and gems are perfect embellishments.

Oh I have this stamp (I think in 2 sizes too!) You have captured the pearly pink sheen on these shells just so splendidly, and how pretty the scene looks with the little pearls, against the sandy browns and blue stripe. This one is sure to be a winner with a beach lovin' SIL. TFS the link..I edited the post to share that link. Appreciate you taking the time to send it along, and I'm sure a lot of other readers will too! TFS & have a great wkend. Hugs
