Beach Bird

Today's card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white card stock for the base.  The purple mat is 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and the pink polka dot mat is 5 1/4"x4."

The bird is from "3 Birds on Parade" (page 33) and was cut at 3 1/2."  The waves are from "Life is a Beach" (page 45) and they were cut at 1 1/2."  The sand was hand cut and covered in glitter.  The stamp shape is from "Elegant Edges" (page 37) and was cut at 4 1/4."  I embossed it with a Darice embossing folder called "Clouds."

I gave the bird a set of eyes from Peachy Keen Stamps, the Cartoon Bombshell Face Assortment.  I accented the eyes with a white gel pen and used some magenta chalk to add a little blush to her cheeks.  I then adhered her to the card with foam tape.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  The "warm" is from a sentiment that actually reads "cocoa warms the heart," from the Winter Wishes set.  I masked off all parts except the "warm."  "Birthday Wishes!" is from the Simple Sentiments set.  I then added some pink gems for a little bling.

I made this for the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut: project related to the beach
Cardz TV: child's birthday
Die Cuttin' Divas: beach inspired project
