Birthday Card ~ Beach Vacation (post #2)

I remember summer days at the beach walking along leaving behind my footprints as I ventured on in search of that perfect seashell.
I used a stamp set for the first time even though I have had it for a long time.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front 5.25 x 4 in. embossed with a folder from the Cuttlebug Fancy Frames Cricut Companions set.
*Sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set.
*Sun, sea stars and footprint stamps from the Beach Bums stamp set from Hampton Arts
*CTMH Crystal blue, Goldrush, Buttercup and Desert Sand stamp pads.

May your day always be filled with love.
