A Beach-y Birthday, and One for Summer Days...

Yep-we're still in prime birthday season around here. LOL

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...

Edge die: Spellbinders Classic Scallop     Sentiment stamp: Hero Arts

Next up, a card with the same sentiments, but a totally different presentation.  Bright shades of orange and aqua and summer white...
