Welcome to
We are so glad you have joined us today. 
I think this theme for Ashley's Birthday Hop is so fun!

Card #20

Everybody sing with me now... 
"We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine..."

If you arrived here from 

you are in the right place.
To start at the beginning, CLICK HERE.

I made Ashley a YELLOW SUBMARINE birthday card in honor of her loving the Beatles.
Here are all the details:

Cricut Cartridge LIFE IS A BEACH
Submarine page 58 cut @ 3"
Waves page 45 cut @ 1 1/2"
Seahorse page 69 cut @ 2"
Everything was cut twice and pop-dotted up on itself for dimension

Cardbase is Value Pack white with smokey blue swirls
Background paper is from Prismatic stack cut @ 5 1/4" x 4"
Edges chalked with Colorbox
Rhinestones from Recollections

Here's another view trying to get that shiny background to cooperate for a good photo.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
