Classy Cards N Such - By The Sea

Here is a card  made for the Classy Cards N Such beach scene challenge.  We were given a picture of a beach theme for inspiration.  

I started my card by cutting a navy blue frame using the Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die.  This really is a classy looking frame.  

 I used red and navy card stock to cut the layering pieces using the Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies.    This set has seven dies with both rectangle and oval dies to make some great layouts.

The Lighthouse image I used is from the Graphic 45  By The Sea paper pad.  The shells wre also cut from this pad.   I used Joy Small Foam Pads to pop the shells up on my card.  

I used star punches to cut the stars that I placed in the corners.  I adhered them to the card  using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.  

I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Don't forget to make you beach card and upload it to our challenge.  We can't wait to see your card.
