Bits and Bobs #17

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Labor Day weekend is the last hurrah of summer and around here everyone gets in that last beach trip! I am showing a beach Bits and Bobs card today that I made from things found in my stash of card making supplies. This image was already stamped and colored that I found in my image pile. The background was made by swiping the card stock through spritzed Distress inks. I used some old cream embossing powder that had some copper embossing powder mixed with it to depict the sand at the shoreline. I found the seashell cord and attached it to the bottom of the card. I knew I had this cord somewhere. I had not used it in a long time. I finally found it after looking in many bags! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope I have inspired you to look through your stash of craft supplies to make your own Bits and Bobs card. Have a wonderful day!

Very pretty card. I love the details like the embossing powder sand and the shells over the twine.

This is gorgeous April. The embossed sand and that shell ribbon are just the perfect finishing embellishments.
