BBTB2/Starfish

Happy July 4th.
God Bless America!....
Heather is our Mostess Hostess and she asked us to design from Life Is A Beach, and to use the starfish on page 65. I have a lot of fun when I am knocking around in Life Is A Beach cartridge because it has a lot of darling cuts to design with. I hope you have come to visit me from the BBTB2 blog because it is always a delight to see the creations our design team presents. And a hearty welcome to Mona who was our guest designer and now is a cherished member of our design team sisterhood.

Here is my card.

I cut several individual starfish as well as a border option. ... By the time I started piling on all the cuts, most of the starfish became hidden. I used my EK Success edge punches and I embossed just about everything on the front of the card. I couldn't resist adding some cute little seahorses with a wee bit of bling. I like the sentiment and perhaps the little scene might look like the family of seahorses are romping under the sea in a serene retreat from rough seahorse life.

TFL, and I love it when you leave a comment because then I know you were here to visit a spell. Have a wonderful July 4th week. I hope you will join up with our Starfish challenge by linking your new card from your blog through Mr. Linky....and be sure to mention you have joined our challenge at BBTB2.
