Here's a card for a sweet friend who celebrated yesterday, and whose love for the beach is probably second only to her love for coconut. :)
Sweet little gold starfish and sea horse charms with pearl accents atop "netting" of cheesecloth and aqua Hug Snug bows...
...and the perfect retro beach-side image...
