Technostamper Challenge 228

I needed to make a card for a beach themed wedding.  So... I choose Mary Jo's sketch for this week for my card...

 I used the retired Seaside Stamp set which is very similar to the new By the Seashore Set in the new Catalog.

I used Crumb Cake cardstock layered with vanilla cardstock.  to make the background on the vanilla cardstock, I embossed the piece with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I used a little pretty in pink ink on a dauber to add a little bit of color to the raised image.

I  then inked the starfish using pretty in pink ink and then used crumb cake ink over the pretty in  pink to give it a variety of color.  As we all know, shells are never just one color.  I love the combination of pink and the crumb cake.  The squares of designer paper are from the Comfort Cafe collection.  The ribbon is the victorian lace ribbon.

I wanted a card with a beachy theme.  I have been working on table cards and place cards for a beach themed wedding that is next weekend.  So I wanted the card to have the same theme as the cards.

These are the table and place cards that I made for Lindsey O'Leary.  Best wishes to Lindsey and Michael!!

Enjoy your weekend!! Don't forget to check out what my other blogging friends have been up to!!
