Frieda On the Seashore

Hope you all have been having a good Monday.  I've got to say that I got worn out over the weekend with having my grands over to spend the night Friday and then out to the movies and lunch on Saturday. They are not little anymore, so I couldn't put them to bed at 7:30 p.m.  ;)  We were up quite late and then after meetings and such yesterday, I had another late night.  One of the things I was doing was working on this card.  It may become special one of these days; and if so, great, but if not, then I still like it and wanted to share it with you.

Once I got the blues worked out, it seemed to go together very well.

I used the current My Favorite Things Sketch for the layout:


Materials Used:
  • Image and Sentiment - The Craft's Meow - Frieda on the Seashore - stamped on Xpress It Blending Card.  
  • Cardstock - Base is Gina K Designs 120 lb.; Stampin Up Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Real Red
  • Pattern Paper - Authentique - Glory paper pad
  • Accessories - Martha Stewart Edge Punch; Stampin Up Large and Small Star Punches; Nestabilities - Ribbon Tag Trio Die
  • Copic Markers:  B0000; B18, B32; E000, E00, E21, E31, E34, E35, E37; E40, E42; R21, R29, R59; BV01; 0; White Gel Pen
That's about it.   I'm going to submit this card to the following challenges:
