MHKDesigns Monthly Challenge - June/July

Hello friends!

Hello, and welcome to our SURPRISE Birthday Beach Blog Hop for the lovely Asha!  You should have arrived here from Jerrie Mead's blog.  If not, start at the MHKDesigns blog to complete the hop for more chances to WIN!  We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!

Here is our inspiration image:

Here is what I created: 

I used sponge daubers to create a sky, shoreline and beach. I emphasized the beach using some glittery embossing powder. I used the sentiment from the "Beachy Keen" stamp set.  

Thank you so much for joining in our hop to say "Happy Birthday" to a dear friend!  Your next stop on the hop is Judith Smith (Guest) blog! 

Until next time,


  1. Hello Jessica! :) Your card is stunning! I just love how you've done your beachy sand! So pretty with the shimmer and great shell accent and sponged blue sky too!!

  2. Wow, this is amazing, love all of the finishing touches on this beauty. Especially the texture/glitter.

  3. How gorgeous! I love the way you used the sponge daubers, the sentiment and the beautiful shell & sand!
