And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

By the Sea

Hello friends!  Today's Splitcoaststampers Sketch is a fun one if you love a lot of layers.  This will be added to my much needed stash of masculine cards.  Off to the ocean we go...

Creative Nugget:  The Fishing Net Background was white embossed on a piece of mixed media paper and Oxide Inks were sponged on to coordinate with paper from the By the Shore Collection that shows through the window.  The pelican from the By the Sea stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs was colored with Copic Markers and cut out to pop onto the front of the card. Since I needed a birthday card, I grabbed a sentiment from the Wishing Well stamp set.  A few clear Nuvo Crystal Drops were added to finish the card.

This card will also be submitted for the following challenges:
Crafting From the Heart Challenge #171 - Anything Goes
Moving Along With the Times Challenge 51 - Things that Fly
Simon Monday Challenge - Simon says: Happy Birthday
Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #111 - Beach
The Paper Players PP356 - Theme Challenge:The Great Outdoors

That's all for now...have a wonderful Wednesday!

Cathy, your card is absolutely gorgeous! I adore that fishnet background stamp (yes, I own that stamp too!)! I love that you embossed it in White and ink blended the distress oxide inks over it! The layers are absolutely lovely and such an awesome pelican for your centerpiece! Thanks so much for joining us at Stamp, Ink, Paper for our beach theme card this week!
