For my inspiration I prepared a card I made for my DH as we've just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary :-).



For my card I used the beautiful papers from the By The Sea and Place in Time collections. My hubby loves all things nautical, probably because he was born in a house right on the Pendine Sands (in Wales) and he lived with his parents in Eastbourne for many years.


If you have a closer look, the papers actually feature a lighthouse from Beachy Head in Eastbourne - how cool is that? The lighthouse is now red & white but I couldn't be happier to see that image in the collection. Below is a picture of me (a couple-ahem-ish years ago) with the Beachy Head lighthouse in the background - such a magical place, isn't it?



For my card I used White Crafty Foam Tape, 3D Foam PennantsE-Z Runner® Permanent Strips, Adhesive Sheets, Creative Photo Corners - Mix PackDODZ™ - Small and DODZ™ - 3D.

Don't you think those Photo Corners look like little cute beach huts?


I used various fabrics: burlap, cheese cloth and a really cool ribbon I bought some time ago at a flea market in Ghent, Belgium. 

I added some stamping with Stampendous stamps (Loving Messages) and StazOn Midnight blue ink.



I also added a 'message in a bottle' with strips of papers, sequins, mica fragments, glitters and powders from Stampendous Fran-tage lines. It's difficult to photograph it but it looks like it has all the sparkliness of the sea captured within it :).



The rope on the bottle is tied in a buntline hitch knot as per the metal plaque underneath. I saved these from a picture frame I altered a while ago.


I also decorated the inside of the card and I added some stamping (Stampendous Queen Bee).  



I've also prepared a full tutorial for my card which you will be able to see on my blog on Friday 1st August. So please come back, as I will also have a small surprise for my blog followers hidden within my tutorial post :). Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L have very kindly given me the opportunity to treat one of you lucky crafters to a $25 shopping spree on the website - yaaaay!

I hope you've enjoyed reading about my project and if you have, I'd be delighted if you joined to follow my blog :). Do let me know your blog address so I can return the kindness!

Thank you for all your lovely comments and happy hopping!
