I used papers from Websters Pages 6x6 Spring Market/Yacht Club/Country Estates collection.
I chose these papers (oops, I realize now the yellow-gold anchor paper I also used is missing. I must have chosen it after taking this pic + plus a few stash snippets as needed). I did a little cut and paste work with the 2 illustrated papers. I fussy cut the fence top from the sky. Then with a craft knife, I cut out the fence openings. That way I could have the blue card stock wave die cut showing through behind the fence but in front of the whale paper. I matted the finished scene layer on a black card stock scrap.
I used multiple dies on this card: the Sizzix sun, the Cottage Cutz seagulls, the Quickutz Squeeze clouds, the My Favorite Things blue waves, and the Spellbinders 6x6 Art Deco Fairmont Nesties for the front and back bottom paper layers. I also used some very old alpha stickers for the front sentiment "Seas the Birthday".
Some of you who have been reading me for awhile may remember THIS Sea-themed tag I made back in May 2019?
the shabby chic card.
Here are the rest of the pics --
