Coastal Birthday

Hi Everyone!

The card I have for today was inspired by this card I saw on Rebekka's blog. I thought it was just ingenious how she combined these two stamps from OCL's Coastal Wishes. Such a simple thing to do and yet the results are great, at least I think so!
I didn't have a lot of time to do this card today, so I wanted something that was going to be done relatively quickly. I chose Ocean Tide (PTI), Kraft and white as my colors. I used my stamp a ma jig to position the two stamps the way that I wanted them and then stamped them on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used Copics BG10, BG72 (water) Y21, Y26(Sun)B00, B02, C1 (Sky) YG91 (sand) YG63, YG63 (grass)
Even though it was a simple card, it still fits quite a few challenges:

1. ABC Challenge: C is for Charms (it's hard to see; but there is a charm that says "wish" in the top left corner

2. Cooking it up with Katie: 3 papers, something clear and inspired by a song. My card was inspired by the Kenny Chesney song "On the Coast of Somewhere Beautiful" and I added the clear blingy stickers on the bottom somewhat randomly. My three papers are listed above

3. Cuttlebug Challenge: Make a birthday card with at least 2 layers

4. Freshly Brewed Designs: Use brown somewhere on your card

5. Gingersnap Creations: Use your punches: I used a corner rounder, a ticket corner punch and a scalloped edge punch

6. Stampotique: Birthday card

7. Wild Flower Patch: Scallops and Buttons

8. Flourishes Timeless Tuesdays: Tickets. This one sort of confused me; but I noticed from the samples that a lot of people had used the ticket corner punch
