Happy birthday wishes... BY THE TIDE!

Hello! It's a beautiful summer day, not too hot!! I have a fun share today, a card with an inside as decorated as the outside...
I'd like to start off by saying that I love this stamp set... it makes really cute cards and you can add so much colour! I first took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and brayered the sky with Soft Sky, Crushed Curry & Pumpkin Pie inks. I used a post it punched out with the 1 1/4" circle before I started brayering to get the sun to pop. I made the cute sandpail from the cupcake punch and the handle is Early Espresso baker's twine. I made a flag, I used the Hexagon punch to flag the end.

I made the sand by tearing pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock and sponging the edges. The lobster is stamped and coloured with Wild Wasabi ink/marker, I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I coloured black with a sharpie marker for his eyes.

For the inside of the card I wanted to make it like 'under the sea'. I stamped the 'coral' image (my favourite image in the set, by the way!) I'm a huge fan of collecting rocks and minerals and I have quite a few real coral specimens - so that is naturally my favourite stamp in the set. I used versamark to stamp the coral and used Whisper White and Tangerine Tango embossing powder to get the two-tone look on the coral! I stamped the two fish and coloured them in with Stampin' Write Markers in some bright colours. I used a sponge dauber in Island Indigo to get the look of ocean water and make the coral pop more with the darker shading.
