MMSC#58-Gurlee Girl Lexi Summer Fun

It's Summertime and the heat is on! Time to go to the beach and cool off and have some fun in the sand and surf. That is exactly what "Lexi" from the Gurlee Girl Collection by Chelsea is doing! I just the new Martha Stewart PATP Shell collection punch to set the scene. The shells are real shells from a personal collection that I have in a jar from some of the beaches I have been to in Florida. What is so cool that I don't think can see in the picture is I applied stickles to them which makes this card sparkle and shine beautifully!

The Martha Stewart branch punch was used to the sea weed. I made my own "sand" for this card that I will show you in a tutorial how to do later this week. I also stickled the white shells on the border which really doesn't show up real well in the picture. This card is so much prettier IRL.
