Loving thoughts

Hi there!

I have a card to share I made over the weekend, with the inspiration from 2 challenges :

Just us girls ~ Word week : Water

&

Less is More ~ Colors : Blue&Brown



A closer look:



Remember I told you here that I made a blue background the same day I did the green one?

Well ... this is the blue background, die cut , to make the frame you see on this card.

Sentiment by Casual Friday stamps.

Starfish cut with my Silhouette from kraft card stock, embossed, and sponged with Vintage photo distress ink.

Gold sequins to finish off the design .



                       We'd love you to display our banner

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

I love this blue/brown color combo, and your frame is just beautiful! Your sentiment goes so nicely wit the seaside theme of your card. I can't help but think loving thoughts when I see the ocean. It's such an amazing aspect of our world. :)

The change in color makes it look so different, Hannelie, but perfect to frame the starfish. I love how you embossed and inked them. Great card!
