Beach Box

July is another birthday month!!  This card is for a good friend of mine from high school and college.  Her birthday is on the 23rd and she and some friends from high school always rent a beach house in Old Orchard Beach, Maine---right on the beach.  They are so generous always inviting friends and family members to join them.  This was my 3rd year spending time with them on the beach and they had a BEAUTIFUL week!!

I chose to make this card in the box because Vicki saw it on pinterest and thought it was a kit!  I told her no, that people make their own, custom made cards.  For Vicki, I used a lot of sizzix dies,  SU punches and the beach chair with the hat is actually a stamp from Great Impressions that I colored with copics and cut out.  The paper is from Authenique which was perfect with shells all over it.  The back of the card for the sentiment is graphic 45 paper! Back to my craftroom to make some more July birthday cards!    Check out some more closeups below----    Happy Birthday Vicki!!!

Background stamp-beach chair, hat and sandals!
Love the sentiment-so perfect!
