♥ A card for 2 challenges ♥


Hi there ... I made this card for 2 challenges ... Simon says stamp ~ by the sea and Curtain call ~ nautical theme.
Out of all the crafty supplies and stamps I own I hadn't one sentiment to fit the card, so I just played safe and used "happy birthday"  ;)
The anchor die was a free sample die cut from Tracey at Dies to die for (which I must add to my ever growing crafty wish list) and the splatter stamp is from Making memories (stamped with Papertrey ink) a scattering of sequins, pearls and enameled dots  Hope you are all warm enough!! ... LOL .. can't hack the heat at all .. a tad on the grumpy side ... LOL

Perfect, Marlou, and definitely works as a birthday card, especially a masculine one, I think. Love the sequins. I know what you mean about the heat...I'm too old to cope with it now. I'd prefer to sit in the shade, much more pleasant! We're just not used to it x

I love this card, Marlou! I agree with you regarding the heat! Over here it is near 100 degrees Fahrenheit and humid. I am definitely a winter person.
