First, I have some news to share: I'm pleased to announce that as of today, I am a member of the Stampin' B's Design Team!! Each Thursday, one member of the Stampin' B's team issues a card-making challenge, and we invite you to be inspired and play along--just for the fun of it! :)
Today's challenge was issued by my SCS friend Brenda, known to many as Benzi. Her challenge was to use a charm on our cards. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!!! I was excited to dig into my collection of fun charms from Mark's Finest Papers for this adorable brass seahorse. For some crazy reason, seahorses make me think of retro 50s & 60s bathrooms, (I know, weird, huh??). I was picturing pearly seahorse plaques in a mint green and pink bathroom, so I Googled "mint pink bathroom" for inspiration for this card--and found it in spades!!
Fun stuff, right? Does it remind you of your grandmother's house??
I used images from the Mark's Finest Papers Flourished Sea Creatures stamp set and some lovely pearlescent Sparkle Finish card stock (also from MFP) for my 50s flashback card. I love how it turned out!! Here are a few close-up photos.
Thanks for checking out my little slice of bliss today!!
