Seize the Birthday - Beachy

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  We have a new challenge this week at Seize the Birthday and it is a beachy theme.  Remember it is our "Toppings" option and the only real requirement is that it be a birthday project.


For my card I created a beach scene by tearing a piece of paper and taping it over the panel and sponged on MFT Natural ink for the sand, then covered that area and sponged on two Distress inks in Tumbled Glass and Salt Ocean for the water.  After that I used Taylored Expressions Cloud border die to sponge on the clouds.
I stamped the cute MFT PI Beach Day image, colored her with Copics and then fussy cut her out.  She is mounted with foam tape.  The palm trees are from MFT Penguins in Paradise.  One tree I stamped straight and the second one I curved it on the stamp block before stamping it.  I fussy cut them and mounted the curved one on top with foam tape.  I stamped sentiment from Papertrey Ink Tulip Time in SU Crumb Cake to look like it was written in the sand.  As a final touch, I die cut a small sunflower die, cut it down, and added it for a sun.

Now check out all the great beachy birthday cards by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday and join in this fun challenge.

I am also linking my card to Just Us Girls Word Week - Outside theme.  Since my card is the perfect outside scene I thought it would fit.



Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
