Beach-themed Birthday


As I was planning a card for my son's birthday I found a sketch that I liked from the Paper  Players, Sketch # 156.  I decided it would work for the type of card I wanted after I turned the sketch on it's side.   Here is the sketch I used.

I selected By the Tide stamp set and the Along the Shore stamp set (retired).
Teeny Tiny wishes was used for the sentiment, and Itty Bitty Backgrounds provided a nice sandy-looking background for the card.  The card stock selected includes Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Whisper White.

The images were stamped with black ink and Soft Suede ink pads. Watercolor crayons and an Aqua Painter were used to color them.
Accessories include  3/4" and 1" circle punches and the modern label punch.
I  am pleased with the way it turned out. It worked out great for a masculine card.

Thanks for looking.  Enjoy your day!

What a great way to combine both tamp sets! I love how you "flipped" the sketch, oo. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
