By the Sea

Hello there,

Hope everyone had a great 4th! I wanted to share a card I made for our DIL.  Her birthday was yesterday and didn't want to make her a July 4th card but still kept it red, white and blue.  I can't get enough of this paper collection from Graphic45 call By The Sea.  I just love it! No coloring on this one just great images from the paper!

  2. I wonder what is was like to be the rich and famous? sailing and talking such sweet and pretty phrases. The starfish and bow are quite the addition to this absolutely wonderful card. We all appreciate seeing the inspirational and wonderful card you’ve posted with us today. Thank you! Blessings,
