Coastal Inspiration

     Happy Monday Morning!  I decided to enter the Mod Squad Challenge, this week.  The theme is Coastal Inspiration.  I brought out and older Gina K. Designs set, by Tami Mayberry, called Oh Boy!

     To create my card, I started with a Lipstick Red GKD Pure Luxury base.  On my white layer I did direct to paper inking.  I stamped my images on my background for placement, and then paper pieced all of the elements with scraps of dsp.  My little fish punches, were a gift from my friend Carol.  She gifted me with a bag of them in confetti colors, and I just love them!  I added some diamond Stickles to make my ocean & sky shine, and a hemp bow to resemble rope.

     I would also like to enter this card over at Pixie's Snippets Playground, since I used so many little scraps to paper piece.

     I hope you like, and I thank you for stopping around for a visit.

A great sailing scene! Makes me want to hit the beach now. VERY cute and pretty all rolled into one. Love the little fish too.

Those older stamp sets still pack a good punch don't they?! This is adorable with paper piecing and the nautical theme! I love how you did the sentiment panel too! NJ!
