Beach Birthday

My Niece and her family went on a trip to Florida just before my Great Nephews birthday, and she shared pictures of all the boys playing in the water and so that is where my inspiration for this card came from.

I used flocking for the sand, and punched my birds from gray paper so they looked more like seagulls :) Sponged on the water with distress inks, adding a few highlights with my white gel pen and used my homemade stencil for the clouds. 


Stamp image from a swap - colored w/markers and cut out
Distress Ink - Mermaid Lagoon (water)
Doodlebug designs - Crushed velvet flock (sand)
RS Tapestry - pegstamps- Trellis leaf vine and grass blades stamps
Memory Box - Birds dies

Hope you will have a lovely Sunday!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Connie
