Beach Theme Thank You Card

   With anticipation I made this card to thank our host and hostess for inviting us to their beach house. I printed the blue striped paper from a collection of digital files I have in 
Picaso. I used there editing function to lighten the navy stripes to a look more nautical. I used the largest Spellbinder label four to cut and emboss the tan paper, then I traced around the outside of the die on an ivory glimmer paper for the outline.

 The starfish and seashells are svg files from the Cape Cod and Just Beachy.  All the shells are inked and dry embossed for added dimension and then mounted with dimensional dots.

 I cut the little bottle from some plastic packaging and put in a little note SOS. I use some jute twine to tie around the neck and on the tan strip. 

I then used some outline chain stickers and the gold Thank You from Mark Richards Peel Off's. I order them  from Paper Wishes I love the peel off's and keep several in stock, I think they add a touch of class. What do you think?

Thanks for visiting. Comments are appreciated:)
