I Brake for Beachcomber Bertha ..

Hello IBFS fans !!
It's Crystal here and I'm back with a birthday card using Beachcomber Bertha . I created a faux window  with a beach scene on the outside
beachcomber Bertha 006 - Copy - Copy
the card base is a 5" x 5"
cut another layer at 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" ,die cut a big scallop oval window into this layer . sponge Tim Holtz pumice stone on the sand area , salty ocean for water and chalk some blue clouds in and with a black marker add sea birds
lay the beach layer on top of the card base lightly mark your window opening  , remove the beach layer and stamp Beachcomber Bertha onto card front inside the penciled area m, erase the pencil and copic color Bertha
pop dot the beach layer to the front of the card ,die cut flip-flops and add to the front beach layer , I added stickles to my flip-flop straps , make a Happy Birthday banner using the words from half sheet #052

inside I made a 4 7/8 by 4 7/8 layer in lt blue and then torn some tan card stock to create the sand and stamped my sentiment from half sheet #052 , I die cut a sea shell and starfish and inked the edges and wrinkle  it up to give and old look with more dimension , add sand specks with copic marker tip
