Hugs from the Shore!

ODBD stamps, Ocean Treasures, designed by Grace Nywening

 Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well!

I'm poppng in with a quick card to share.  For this card I used this gorgeous shimmery design paper from s.e.i. and used that for all the decisions made on the rest of the card.  I stamped the gorgeous sand dollar image from Ocean Treasures with Colorbox Robins Egg Pigment ink and heat embossed with Diamonds & Pearls.  I sponged the edges with Colorbox Lemon Grass to pick up the outline colors of the shells on the dp.

I used last month's release from ODBD to make my banner.  I used the Pennant Swag Alphabet to stamp the letter, and punched them out with a 1/4" circle EK Success punch.  I die cut the banner from white card stock, using the Custom Pennant Swag Die. I used some of the little patterned pennant stamps from the same alpha set and stamped with Robins Egg, then cut out and assembled the banner.  Little buttons were placed at the ends of the banner.  This was for several of the DTGD challenges on SCS... including the sketch, which I thought was very fun.  I have fallen in love with this sand dollar!!!  I have several ideas I want to do with it, but not sure if I have enough time to do them all! :)  

Well that's it for me today!  I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

A exquisite card. Love the glitter and shine. How appropriate to use the symbol of Christs birth, death and resurrection.
Worthy of hugs indeed. - Jim
