Beachcombing for the Mr. & Mrs.

Welcome!  Wouldn't this grouping be a fun find along the beach:  a seashell, a starfish, a sand dollar, some golden seaweed, and pearls?  With a collection like this, even a bit of seaglass - which I am giddy about - would pale by comparison.


Yes, this is another card that went to the bridal shop.  Creating these beach-themed cards is lots of fun for me.  I hope they give pleasure to the brides and grooms who receive them.


Was happy to get a chance to use my Wonderfully Worn Background stamp from Stampin' Up! as my 'sand.'


Thanks a bunch for coming by today!

This is super-wow fabulous, Colleen! I love the seashell sticker, but the sand dollar and starfish are just as awesome. Very realistic. Someone is going to snatch this right up!
