By the Tide for PCCCS23

Greetings, Stampers! Today's project is a Thank You for the most awesome-est of friends. It features one of my favorite new stamp sets from the Stampin' Up Spring Catalog, By the Tide. I love this set! It seems that everything you do with it looks great, and it's so easy to create a collage-style scene.

There seems to be no end to the challenge sites out there in blog land, and I wish I could play along with them all. The Paper Craft Crew challenge is one I'm playing with for the first time,  in part, because they enticed me with the opportunity of some blog candy. There are some super talented crafters on their crew and you should go check them out!

The seahorses are stamped in Soft Suede, the coral in Calypso Coral, and the greeting in Crumb Cake. The edges and entire background are sponged in Pool Party. So pretty, so easy.

Stamp Sets: By the Tide, Kindness Matters, Netting

That natural ribbon trim really shines on this card. It literally and figuratively ties it all together. Love it!
