Whisper of the Sea

Good Morning,

Have you ever looked at a bloggy friend's project and thought "Oh I want to make something like that"?  I used to be afraid of copying someone else's work thinking that it would look just like their work but I discovered that I put my own mark on everything I make, so I don't worry about that anymore.  Last Sunday, I saw my friend Jane's soft colored card, I loved it and I wanted to make my own card with soft colors.  I saw a digital stamp on Aurora Wings called "Whisper of the Sea" I thought it would be perfect for a soft card. This is a flip card.

Here is a close up of the digital stamp.  This stamp is on sale!  If you want it, go HERE

I may have gotten a little bit carried away with the glitter but when I finished coloring her, she looked like she might like some glitter.

The charm on the card is from Close to my Heart (seaside assortment) as are the pearls, the flower is a Prima.  The charm says "Dreaming of the Sea"  The paper is also from Prima it is called "Seashore".

Here is the back of the flip card: The stamp is so old, I don't know where I bought it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
