Seaside Thanks

Hi friends!  I am so excited that today in Chicago we are actually going to be above 40 degrees! Wooohooo!
Warmer temps are on the horizon! And this new die set called, Up in the Clouds, was perfect for a summery card!  I cut the sun and seagulls out.  I added glossy accents to the birds and set them aside to dry. 
I cut the starfish and water using the Kinetic Straight Waves Die set.   I added glossy accents, Glamour Dust, and a pearl to each star fish.  I used Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks on the water.  
I stamped the large sentiment using the, You're Too Kind Clear stamp. I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the words.  The black ink just seemed a bit too "heavy" so the white breaks it up a bit I think. :) I added some rustic twine and a few additional pearls to finish it off.  
Thanks so much for stopping by!
