Happy Birthday

Sigh! just one card today - had a few bits and pieces to do. I made it for Jay Gee Nooks Blog whose challenge this month is a photo challenge of lots of beach things, banners, lighthouse etc and predominantly blue and white with a little red. I also followed the sketch from Mojo Mondays #197 and also managed to incorporate the 'T' challenge from Top Tip Tuesday where you had to use anything beginning with the letter 't' and I used twine, triangles and a tag!



And my tip - to make waves use a scalloped template and trace the outline and then turn it upside down to create some waves!


materials - Blue cardstock; MM 'Fresh Anthology Sydney' papers; Lawn Fawn 'swimsuit season' stamps; Stazon black and Versa Magic 'night sky' inks; Carolee Creations tiny worn navy alpha stickers; Marvy blender 0, sapphire 100 pens; Carl 'primitive heart' punch; Sizzix 'traditional tags' die; Crafters Workshop 'scalloped swirls' template; 1/8" red eyelets; twine; white gel pen.
