A Seaside Birthday Theme



I had a lovely time making this seaside birthday card for the Magnolia Down Under "Under the Sea" challenge.  I used some of my new SU designer papers from the "Pink Flamingo" set.  I used my SU "Seaside" stamps with Versamark stamp pad on the base card to create some background interest and added a hint of kindy-glitz to highlight the stamps.  I coloured my Magnolia image in with my Stampin' Write markers and the background with the watercolour crayons and my Blender pen.  I used my new pretties kit for the hat pin and coloured the flower to match the card.  I followed the theme onto the inside of the card as well.  I stiched the blue paper on the front and inside of the card with my sewing machine but it doesn't show up well in the photo.  The cards stock colours are "Close to Cocoa" and "Creamy Caramel".  This card is for my friend Michelle who lives in Newcastle.  Its her birthday at the end of the week.  She loves the ocean and crafting so I think she will enjoy this card.  Thanks for visiting my blog!
