Enjoy The Ride

 And, one more card for one more co-worker.  I had no co-workers with birthdays in January, but two for February.  This co-worker loves to ride up and down coast.  Her goal is to see every beach on each US coast line after she retires.  Because I grew up on the Oregon coast, I tried to make this look a little bit like "home".  :)   This was all done using my Cricut.  The card base, the waves, the clouds, the seagulls, the banner, the writing on the banner, and the fussy cutting around the image from The Paper Shelter.  The birthday girl's favorite color is purple, so I used a lot of purple on the image.  I sort of wanted to make the light house purple, but couldn't get out of that box that it should be red.  HAHA  I added pearls around the frame.  I so badly wanted to add more, but, for some reason, I decided it looked good as it is.  I did add the misty spray on the "sky", just wish it would have bene slightly smaller mist spots.  Overall, I like how this turned out.  Oh, the image is called Undetected On The Routes.

Thanks for looking!
