Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #255

Spring! We had a sunny weekend and living on the wet coast that means Spring has rolled in in all its allergy-inducing glory!  People were outside gardening, riding motorcycles, and firing up the BBQs while little kids learned how to ride those Christmas bikes in the beautiful if slightly chilly sunshine.  It's totally raining today but we had a great weekend. 

For this week's sketch from Atlantic Hearts, I knew I wanted to use the very pretty Make Waves paper packet and try to work a little outside the box, just a little.  So picking up on the flower and sea star theme I found this super cute seastar/starfish border from the Cricut Artistry Collection which I cut out in Lagoon Cardstock.  I then added a few sea stars from the Cricut Flower Market and You are Here Collections.  I love that the center of the "pine flower" cut (which I cut out on Bashful Glitter Paper) totally looks like a seastar and I could use it as an accent on my border.  The "Happy Birthday" is from the Cricut Artbooking Collection and cut out on Pansy and Lagoon Cardstock. The addition of Pansy Cardstock to frame my seastar border and a strip of Silver Shimmer Trim along with a few swipes with my Clear Shimmer Brush and my super cute seastar inspired card is complete!
No automatic alt text available.This card turned out so cute, so little girl although I know a couple of big girls who would love it as well.  Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments.  I hope I have inspired you to come play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Happy Crafting!
