FMS 73

Good morning, Friends! I was really upset that I didn't get this card posted yesterday as I had it done. I just didn't have it photographed. I don't like using my light tent anymore as the photos just don't come out as good as I think they should. I like to take my photos in the afternoon by the window and the natural light really makes everything come out better! But I forgot to take the photo on Sunday. Sunday was a very weird day. Anyway, I tried to take the photo yesterday as the sun was coming up in the morning but that wasn't any good either. It just has to be early afternoon. So no post yesterday. But that's they way it all goes!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made. And because I didn't get my post up yesterday, I am too late to enter it in the challenge. Oh well. I hope you all will still enjoy it! I took a piece of Naturals Ivory and cut a 3" circle using the die. Then I sponged Baja Breeze ink around the edges and stamped the coral image from By the Tide in Not Quite Navy. This is adhered to a card base of Naturals Ivory. Then I flagged one end of a strip of Not Quite Navy and adhered this to the card. I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Not Quite Navy onto a strip of Naturals Ivory and flagged one end before adhering it to the other strip. Then I stamped the shell in Baja Breeze onto a scrap of Naturals Ivory and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card. I added a silver button with some linen thread tied through it. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
