March 1, 2016 - Anything But a Card Challenge

Good morning my friends and welcome back to my blog.  Our challenge for My Besties International is Anything But a Card.  Well that leaves things wide open, doesn't it.  I kept thinking what can I do and went to my local craft shop and started walking the aisles.  Yep, I bet you have done that too to get a little inspiration.  Welllllll I came across some of the cutest "plaques" that I felt would work well with the 3D Printable image I was using  from Sherri Baldy's My Besties "Fluffy" line.  Yep we "fluffy" gals now have some absolutely adorable printable and digital images with us in mind.  Thank you Sherri.   

The Image I am using is called Beach Babes.  It comes in digital as well as the printable I used.  You can find this image by clicking HERE

I found this cute plaque at AC Moore and altered it a bit.  I cut a piece of burlap paper to make an area of "sand" to sit the beach babes on, then added real mini shells and starfish.  The big shell was in a pack of shells I also purchased at AC Moore.  The aqua burlap butterfly and flowers came from a stash that I've had for a while and I'm not sure where I got them.  The wording Beach Memories was already on the plaque.  

I printed several copies of  Beach Babes and cut various pieces out and layered on top of each other to make a 3D look.  All in all, I was very pleased with the way this came out.  I have it sitting on my counter in our motorhome right now, but will hang on a wall in my home when we get back.  :-)  

Here are some other views of the project.
