Seaside Notions Sketch...TGIF Challenge 263!

It's Friday!  Time for a challenge with TGIF Challenges!  Who is ready?!  I know I am!  It's a fun sketch that will really help get your creative juices flowing!  Soooo...I am going to share the card I made with the sketch first.  THEN...just hop on over to our challenge blog and post the card you made for the challenge!  I can't wait to see what you make!  💖

So, as promised, here is the card I made!  I love this stamp set, Seaside Notions, SOOOO much.  I thought it was a fun one to use for the sketch...because who else misses the ocean?!  I really am "thinking of you," my dear ocean beauty.  😀

This was the fun sketch I started with... 
I think this sketch is such a fun one that you could use a million different ways!   

Here are a few more pictures of the card:

Love those sand dollars!  I embossed a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Then when I cut out the sand dollars from the same colored cardstock, and just adhered it over the embossed card piece, it makes a subtle "pop" that I love.  😊

These shimmer in real life, because I colored over them with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  So trust me...they sparkle.  Hee.  LOVE all those layers! 😍

More of those amazing sand dollars!  And sequins....always sequins!  💖

I hope you enjoyed!  Again...head on over to the TGIF Challenge blog and play along with us!   Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  I would love to help!

Hi! I love this card. It's so beautiful and fun! Question - how did you cut out the seahorse and "thinking of you"? Did you cut those out by hand or are there matching dies? I'm new to this so trying to figure out what supplies are needed. Thank you!!
