Have a Beach'n Birthday



Here's another card that customers made on Tuesday evening at my "Hit the Beach" card class at the store. For this one, I used Jen's Sketch for You to Try from this past Saturday for the layout. I also resisted to urge to add some ribbon to this card! I think I go overboard with it sometimes in my classes, so I left it off this time, thinking that these colors (without a ribbon) would make it suitable for a girl or a boy.
I made a last-minute decision to add some Glossy Accents to Changito's inner tube for some extra detail on this card. I told my customers they could add it to their cards too, if they felt they could carry their cards home safely and not have it get ruined, so a few people took the chance and added it on their cards. I hope they all got home safe! It was either that or I told them to just buy a bottle to do it at home! LOL I also used my orange Spica glitter pen to give a little sparkle to the circles on the inner tube.

Hope you had a great Wednesday, and have a wonderful Thursday! I'm about to burst at the seams with excitement today, as my first shipment of Whipper Snapper stamps will be arriving at the store sometime today! (Hurry up, Smitty! That's my UPS guy!) I already know which stamp I'm going to use for Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge tomorrow, so be sure to stop by again! And thanks for visiting me today! I SO loved the slew of comments on the Color Throwdown cards yesterday! Y'all just make me smile! Thanks!

Happy stamping!
