Just Married By The Sea

Hello again!  Welcome back.  :-)

When the shop owner at A Beautiful Touch told me that brides were very "into" beach-themes, I have been exploring the possibilities for cards of the same theme.  Have to say, I'm really liking this one:


I used a sand dollar stamp from Blockheads Paper Arts (they're not open anymore), gorgeous shell sticker from K & Co., sentiment from Papertrey Ink, and other goodies that make me think of the ocean.


The Mottle Brown seam binding from Hug Snug is such a dream.  It's the perfect brown for many of my cards, because it has a gray-ish cast to it.  Love, love, love.  I buy mine at The Zipper Stop.  You get 100 yards for $9.50.  What. A. Bargain.  I used a Colleen bow here (what else is new??).


See you tomorrow, and thanks so much for coming by!

Fabulous! Your card is just perfect for a beach-theme wedding! Just because of you, by the way, I went to the Zipper Stop to look at the seam binding ribbon. I was overwhelmed and couldn't decide, so did nothing. What a selection at such a great price! I do love this color you used. Great card, Colleen!

LOVE this card. The abaca ribbon is awesome and so is the shell sticker. I went looking for the beautiful seam binding you used and they had so many colors, I couldn't decide. I'll go back later. :-)
