Seashore Birthday

I have made this card for a friend to give to her cousin.  My brief was his age, and that he loved the beach and his home and work in the country, and he would be retiring soon.  I hope he likes the card, because I sure do!!  I love the colours and images, and I really enjoyed making this card.

I've used Dictionary, By the Tide, The Open Sea, By the Seashore, Hardwood, and the greeting comes from Label Love.

The colours I've chosen are Marina Mist, Baked Brown Sugar (a personal favourite colour) and Very Vanilla.

The inside of the card reflects the front, as does the envelope I made to go with it.  This card works for the awesome challenge at SUO Challenges - this week - It's Summertime
I am fortunate enough where I live in Queensland near the Eastern Seaboard, that really, this card would work all year round.  


  1. This is absolutely gorgeous!! I love all of the stamped images and your other wonderful details and I am sure he will love it as well :-) Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges :-)

  2. Oh my! This is such a beautiful card. Love the textures, the layers, the collage stamping and the beach theme. Thanks for joining us at SUO.

  3. Gorgeous textures and collages on here...makes me want to spend LOTS of time just looking at it! Lovely! Thanks for playing along with the SUMMER challenge this time on SUO Challenges!

  4. This is GORGEOUS! It is so totally deserving of the win! Congrats!
