On the Boardwalk

Hi all and happy St. Patty's Day!



I made this beachy friendship card for Karen G's Sweet Sunday Sketch using some new Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk DP that I just got at Stamper's Dream. I paired it up with my Flourishes Seaside Life set. The sentiment strip is raised in the middle with some foam tape and so is the middle sand dollar. I colored the white candy dots with my E31 Copic. I dirtied up the twill ribbon and edges of the sentiment with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and added some Platinum Stickles to the sand dollars.

Thanks for stopping by!
