Seaside Treasures Birthday Wishes

HI Everyone.

Happy Saturday.  This is my second post today :-). I'm popping in to share a card I made for The Card Concept and Freshly Made Sketches

Here's the sketch from FMS:


and here's the inspiration photo from Card Concept:

As soon as I saw the inspiration photo from the Card Concept I knew what I was going to do.  I pulled out a very old piece of photo DSP from Stampin' Up! and blended Broken China ink over the top of it to give it a similar color to the inspiration photo.  I then stamped and fussy cut 4 shells from the old Fun Stamper's Journey Seaside Treasures set.  I adhered two shells directly to the base and popped the starfish up on a single foam dot, and then the mussel shell was adhered on two foam dots.
I used a little gel pen to add just a little shimmer and shine:

I backed the panel onto black card stock and added a sentiment.  Here's my card:

I also decorated the inside.  I took a piece of card stock that is a similar color to the outside and adhered that to the base.

I then decorated a grey envelope:

I tried to ensure the colors were masculine enough that I could send this as a male card, but think that they work equally well for a female card :-)
I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
