Color Throwdown #355- I Love You!

Good Wednesday Morning and Happy Hump Day!! Time for a new color combo - Bar is the hostest this week and she picked the fabulous colors...

A starfish surrounded by sea glass... makes my heart happy!! Going on a little beach trip soon... a couple weeks and I can't wait!! We're venturing down to the Gulf of Mexico- Sanibel Island- supposed to be perfect for shelling and the waters on the gulf are so clean/clear!! It's an Anniversary get away!! Ha... just hubs and me... it's been years {those girls/their families just love to hang out with us, who would've thought when a few years ago we didn't know/understand anything:-) } and I do enjoy hanging out with family but, it'll be nice for a change!!

So... you would think after all that you would see a beach scene... nada, oops

Played with a set that I have had for a while...

Sponged the background with TH Distress Inks and then embossed the SSS Falling Stars with metallic silver. The sweet bears (Mama Elephant) were stamped and diecut, colored with copics and layered with foam dots. The sentiment is from the same set.
