Beach Time Friends

A few years back my sisters, sister-in-law and I, along with my mom and aunt, would go every year to the ocean for a girls weekend away. Along with days spent lazing on the patio with cocktails and lots of chatting going on, were many hours spent walking along the beach. My second oldest sister always seemed to be the one who would discover any star fish in the area first. So it just seemed to be "fate" when I saw one of the newer images in Shelly's Images shop was of a young girl and a star fish just before my sister's birthday.  And how wonderful that the theme for Shelly's TTT Challenge right now is Beach Theme (summer) so that I can show off the card that I made. The ladies of the DT have used Shelly's Image "Beach Sign" for their creations and so have I. I paired the Beach Sign with Shelly's Image "Wish Upon a Star" to make a shaker card for my sister for her birthday.
Now usually Shelly's Beach Sign has a full scene around it, but I talked to Shelly and she was o.k. with me fussy cutting the scene part out so that I had just the sign as I wanted to pair it with her other image. I made a center step card and added some Sand Flower Soft to have sand that will actually shake in the card. I coloured the images with my Crayola pencil crayons and oms and attached the sign with pop dots. The seashells and butterfly's were stickers that I had in my stash and the sentiment is a freebie from Scribbles by Sandy and the dp is by Creative Creations.
I found the sentiment inside on Splitcoast Stampers.

Thanks for coming and looking ~
