Cute Card Thursday Challenge #73 - A Day At The Beach

Happy Friday to all. Hubby's birthday was a little challenging yesterday as he was upset that we put a cardboard cutout of 50 on the front window. He said he didn't want the world to know. Guess I'm in big trouble on Saturday, when everyone is here for his surprise party, ooops!! Oh well on to the card of the day. This is my card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, A Day At The Beach. For this card I used my Tilda in the sea. On the water I used liquid glass and while it was wet I sprinkled some fine glitter over it to give it a shimmer like water. I found a stitch on my sewing machine that looked like waves, and my paper had that flowing watery look to it, so that's what I used. I used 2 punches for this one, my Fiskars water punch, and my EK Success sandcastle punch. For the sandcastle cutout I used Papertrey cardboard cardstock, and it was a little plain so I sponged it with Distressing ink to give it a look like sand. Unfortunately you can't see that effect too well in this picture. I threw a big yellow flower in the corner hoping it would give the appearance of a sun. I finished up with some nautical looking ribbon and attached a pail and shovel charm that I purchased from Stamping Bella.
