CAS-ual Friday 66...Smiling Starfish

Wow...the cards from last week's challenge were amazing!!  Way to be square, everyone!!
This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a clean and simple card featuring something you might find or see at the ocean...
The sponsor this week is Stop and Scrap and the winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to do some fun shopping...
Be sure to check out the CAS-ual Fridays blog to get all the deets about this wonderful company and the special offer they are giving to all the participants of this week's challenge:):)!!  Here's my card...
Thanks to my daughter, Emma, for her creative suggestion...I had another card made, which I may put up later, but thought her idea of a shaped card made me so much happier!! I decided on a starfish...so, I googled starfish and came up with a pic that I downloaded and made a bit smaller...HERE'S the link.  I then put some doubled Daffodil Delight card stock behind the copy and cut the starfish.  I used a spotted embossing folder and brayered some tangerine tango on the inside of the folder. I placed one of the cut out starfish in the folder, and ran it through my Big Shot.  I could not fit the entire star into the folder the first time, so the bottom foot where you see the attached sentiment is where I had to run him through a second time for the fifth foot.  I attached the sentiment over the mismatched embossing.  Attached the second cut out starfish to the front one and lined with white paper(not a whole lot of space to write on this guy:)!!)...but my daughter took him to Tennessee with a friend in mind to give him to:)!!  
Make sure to check out the CAS-ual Blog and CAS-ual Friday on Facebook to get some wonderful inspiration and join the fun this week!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
