Hello friends, I am the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls and I just so happen to have picked out a beach photo, so if this card looks similar to my last post it was made the same day. I had such a good time creating my beach scene with my SU watercolor brush for my Seize the Birthday post that I just couldn’t put it away quite yet. I don’t own any shell stamps or sea creatures, (I know the horror and I live in Florida) and then I remembered a scrapbook page I created eons ago that I used punches on to create my sea creatures. I got out my scrapbook to locate that page that I was thinking of, and may have gotten sidetracked for awhile and shed a few tears as my baby is not 6 anymore, and recreated my sea creatures. I know the proportions are a little off, but I think that’s okay. I again used some white foam to pop up my center shape. Hope you decide to join me and my fabulous team for our Photo Inspiration at Just Us Girls. Doesn’t that beach cake look amazing? Enjoy, Nanc’

Wonderful design and how you distressed the edges of the panels. Then, the popped up die in the center is a wonderful effect. The whole card is fabulous.

This is beautiful! Omg, how creative of you to create those sand dollars??? I wouldn’t have thought of that in a million years!

I really love the cameo with the die cut center piece. Great scene you created. How did you do that area between the sand and water? Great effect.

Love your beach scene and the way you did the frothy waves coming ashore. Great job with the shells and elements too.

Wow, how clever to use punches to make the sea creatures. I love how you have popped that focal up, but it blends into the scene. Really effective. Great colors and the distressing on the papers fits perfectly. You know, I don’t think ever signed up to get email notices when you do a post. Well, I have fixed that now…hope I won’t miss any more of them.
