She sells Sea Shells By The Seashore

I just love this image and sentiment from Deedee's Digis. It was a freebie for participating in her challenge last week. I love the fact that the image is summery with the seashells and it reminds me of vacation at the beach. With the sentiment, this is the perfect card for a friend.

I made this card for my cousin, Brandie, who lives in North Carolina, and mailed it off to her this morning. We're more than cousins, we're friends, and very close. I think she's going to love the card.

The green card base is textured cardstock that I have had for over a year. It came in a tablet and I realized after I got it, that the textured cardstock isn't good for punching and things, so I use it for card bases, to try and use it up.

I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious, for the the card layout, and also tried to follow sketch TM #10 at Tuesday Morning Sketches. The DP is all from a new tablet of paper I bought at Hobby Lobby. I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add some glitter and sparkle to the background paper in random places. The ribbon is from my stash. The image is colored with Promarkers.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
