By the Sea

Wow, can't believe it is already Thursday night. Where on earth did this week go? I've been making pickles, and freezing beans, and chasing grandkids-that's where it went, I guess. Did manage to squeeze in a couple cards along the way, tho.

I made this one for my friend's Wedding Anniversary using the colors from the CR84FN 36 Color challange.

The base card is from Kraft.. The yellow DP is from English Garden by Making Memories. I distressed and inked the edges of the piece before I fastened it to the base. The seashells and seagulls are from Crafty Secrets Clearart stamp set "Seaside".  I stamped them with Memento Rich Cocoa. The image of the couple is from SU's set 'By the Sea'. I stampedthe image and the sentiment on Bazzil Simply Smooth White cardstock with Versamark ink and used Stampendous 'Peridot' embossing powder. I cut it out the image with Spellbinders Labels 4 large, the largest one. For the kraft mat I traced around the outside of the die and hand cut out. I used Pebbles earthtones chalks to highlight around the inside of the die (before I cut it out-I find that works best for me). I then used the Pebbles Classic pastel chalks to color in the stamped image.I  cut and matted the sentiment using Spellbinders classic ovals. I liked how this turned out so well I made another one to have on hand. Hope you like.
