This card is for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. But, as most of my projects do, it took a wild turn to the left! Still, you can kinda sorta a little bit tell that it began with the sketch. (That is my way of making myself feel better about my failed attempt!)
I used one of my favorite sets from My Favorite Things to create this card--"By the Seashore." I used a sheet of bazzill scalloped cardstock to create the base of this card. The scallops remind me of the shells so I stamped them all along the borders.
I picked up these cool threading brads (which look like mini golf balls) while shopping with my enabler friend, Deb, last week. I love the cool frame that can be made with these by just threading hemp or thread around them.
I stamped the sentiment on twill and created the waves by ripping cardstock and adhering it on top of a strip of sand I added to the card. I sponged some soft sky ink in the background for the sky and then stamped the seagulls. The girl and dog are stamped and colored and popped out....I added a peice of hemp for his leash. As a final touch, I added a little creative candy twinkle sticker (a muse) to the center of the flower on her hat.
