By The Sea birthday card, Scrapping4fun Challenge entry...Can I have your vote? :)

Hello again!

In April I was lucky enough to win Challenge #14 at the Scrapping 4 Fun challenge blog.  The next step in the challenge is as follows: the challenge winners from Challenges 8-15 submit a project following the same challenge theme.  Rachelle at Scrapping 4 Fun gave all of us this sketch: 
Each challenger made a project and is posted now at the Scrapping 4 Fun blog.  Blog visitors get to vote for the favorite project and the winner wins the grand prize of  three packs of Pion Design Paper!  Awesome prize!

For my project I went with a card using Graphic 45's By the Sea paper and Quietfire Design's Happy Birthday Plain & Simple stamp.  
Also used was a cute as a button die from Quickutz to make this sweet crab:
I wove twine along the top and bottom edges for a fun, by the sea feel.  
Inside the Pier 45 pocket is a tag and a seashell was added to the top.  I applied Stickles and glaze to the shell:
The flags were made using DCWV fiber paper, cut irregular (for a worn look) and Tim Holtz' Scattered Straw ink was applied along the edges (a little tricky in this photo...sorry!):
Thanks so much for stopping by to see the card!  I would so appreciate your vote, if you have time!  To vote, you have to state in the comment section "I vote for #14, Kathy Jo".  :)
Have a great week!
