MHKDesigns June/July Monthly Challenge

 
Hello, and welcome to our SURPRISE Birthday Beach Blog Hop for the lovely Asha!  You should have arrived here from Bernie Cuttino (guest) blog.  If not, start at the MHKDesigns blog to complete the hop for more chances to WIN!  We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!
 
 
 

I used MHKDesigns Happy Birthday from the Eat Your Cake digital set and MHKDesigns Serene Seaside Papers.  I distressed my card, papers and die cut anchor and ovals  with Tim Holtz antique linen, tea die, and salty ocean inks,  and embellished with a few Dew Drops. 

Thank you so much for joining in our hop to say "Happy Birthday" to a dear friend!  Your next stop on the hop is Jerrie Mead's blog!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ASHA!!

What a fab card, Donna. Loving how you've carried the nautical theme into the "water droplet" and anchor... so cleverly done. Thank you so much for this amazing Birthday Blog Hop, dear friend. I am blessed to have you in my life.
HUGS, Asha

Love the soft sandy & cool blue waters colors of this one. It's a nifty design, and love that you echo'd the anchor die in the papers too. The rectangle strips in a pink/tan shade put me in mind of the bleached wood used in beach cottages. Very pretty. TFS & Hugs
