ADFD at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!


Happy Wednesday and welcome to this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Arlana's wonderful sketch.....  


We are joined this week by Tammy at A Day For Daisies , we all love playing and creating with her beautiful images and this week's Grand Prize winner will be able to as well since you will get a $12 gift certificate to the shop. Be sure to leave a comment along with your link at SSW to be eligible. Congrats to last week's winner and our top 3!

A DAY FOR DAISIES provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!



For my card, I used Sahara Sand card stock from Stampin' Up along with design paper from them called Nautical Expedition. I added the seagulls and shell and sentiment from Gina K Designs set "Gifts from the Sea" to enhance this wonderful image from ADFD which is called "At the Sea" and can be found here .
I used a foam dot to lift the shell after fussy cutting it. The sentiment is added to a chipboard piece with added pearls.


Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by to see what the others at Sweet Sketch Wednesday have created for you this week.

Hello Patti, You definitely captured the serenity of beach life in your card! Your nautical papers are fabulous. I am always on the lookout for them but have never seen this one. I love your added seagull and the shell on the outside and the ones on the inside. What a wonderful sentiment! Such a lovely birthday card! Hope all is well with you and that you are making progress with your projects!
Hugs, Judi

this brings back memories of living in Northern Californa. I miss the ocean but not the mildew. Lovely card Patti. I love how you added the shell embellishment. Such a fun embellishment. Hope things are going well with the remodel.
