Anything Ocean or Beachy Challenge

Well hello there my The Sisterhood friends!
It's time for a new challenge at
The Sisterhood of Crafters
and it is being hosted by none other then ME!!

I chose the theme of anything Ocean or Beach-y!

I made a pretty quick card by cheating a little bit lol.

A long while back I purchased some ephemera from
Prima May/June designs by Julie Nutting.
I have always loved her Prima dolls (and I have lots of them)
so why not own this too...hah!

I first inked up by 5 x 5 card base with TH oxide mermaid lagoon.
I used a Sue Wilson frame from her shadowbox 'celebrate' die set.

All I had to do then was pick out some of the cute ephemera
from the package.

I think it came together kind of cute to make a fun summer card!

Now you make sure and head on over to
The Sisterhood and grab some inspiration by seeing
what my 'sistahs' have created...join in with us!!

Don't you love it when cards come together so quickly and easily? I do and this one is darling! What a brilliant use for those ephemera pieces. That polka dotted sea horse makes my heart smile. ;0)

Such a wonderful summer card, Diane! The cute detailed pieces are showcased perfectly against the background you made. Love it! Have a great rest of your week.

Oh, why not just own everything! I've been trying so hard not to shop, but I have a stamp set on the way. Otherwise I received a whole box full of stuff, but I figure if it's not stamps or dies it doesn't count, hahahahahahaha! Well, I honestly needed some of it... Anyway, you put your stuff to good use on this darling and fun beachy card!
