Seashells By The Seashore

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week and doing something wonderful! My hubby had a birthday on Monday and has taken the week off, so I have not had as much crafty time! This lovely "beach goer" from the new Artistic Outpost "Boardwalk" release, is enjoying her day on the Seashore. It is pretty hot here and I am thinking I might just join her! For all the details on the frame and background, stop by and visit me at Artistic Outpost for my Wednesday post.
Through June 8th all Artistic Outpost stamp sets, including this new release are on sale for 15% off, so now is a great time to add to your collection and join in on the Monthly Referral Program as well.
 A little bit of fussy cutting on the lady!
Love how the three little Seashells made such a nice background when masked and stamped individually.
My card is going to visit the following challenges:

Greetings Janny

Brenda Brown said...

Saw this at AO and I just love that frame, such a clever way to make it look as though it has been under the boardwalk for a while. I hope Steve had a lovely birthday and that you are both having a good week. The sun has been shining for about 5/6 days here but its only about 70, nothing like your warm temperatures.
