A Card For My Sister

I am giving away a prize. To read about it click http://www.chrissandlou.blogspot.com/2014/06/prize-giveaway.html

Hello My Friends,

Today is my sister's birthday!  Happy Birthday Mary.  She recently came home for a visit.  She had a wonderful time and was able to visit all six of her brothers & sisters that still live in this area.  She stayed with my sister Peggy at her Ocean beach cottage and then she came and spent a day with me at my Bay beach cottage.  We took her out on our boat and then took her out for a seafood dinner.  I decided that since my card would not make it to her in time for her birthday; I would make her a "friendship" sister card that she can look at and remember her wonderful trip.

I used a fancy layer card by Jamie Lane.  I really like it because you can put two images on it.

Here is the first side of the card.  The digital image is by A Day for Daisies.  It is called Sisters At The Sea, I just love it!  I colored this with Copic markers.  The paper is Prima Seashore the flowers, flair button and seashell stickpin are all from the Prima Seashore line. The twine is yellow & navy blue by Trendy Twine.

Here is the second side of the card.

For this I used Just Rite At The Beach Oval Medallion Stamp.  I colored it in a little with my copic markers.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
