Happy Birthday Paula!

Hello Friends!

Today is my sister's birthday. here is the card that I put together for her. She loves the beach, so I started with the now retired Bermuda Bay card stock. I stamped that cute beach chair on watercolor paper and water colored the image with markers and aqua painters.

The other colors here are soft suede, pretty in pink, melon mambo. The clay pot and kitty are more mustard, and the pillow and flowers were started with pink pirouette.

I used the button and linen thread to make the cool button bow (that requires no tying). I used glue dots to adhere that to the card. At the end, I added some Illuminate smooch top coat to add the sand and waves effect.. Here's a darker photo at a different angle showing some of what I did for that. The top coat is very subtle, but it's so darn pretty.

The card is going to be a little late getting there (because that's how I roll). :D

TGIF and Happy Birthday Paula! This pretty card will be in your mailbox soon (well, someday).
