Be a Star......FMS350





The neutral colors of Early Espresso and Soft Sea Foam allow that gorgeous bow to take center stage on my card!  

Just like this amazing starfish takes center stage on the rock pile! Emma and her parents went to the coast of Maine last week and spent hours searching a tide pool for starfish and finally there was a delightful pink one - seemingly waving hello!



The next day they went out on a lobster boat and found another starfish caught in a trap. Emma got to hold this one before releasing it back to the sea.


                                            


No starfish for me last week but I did get to a Dierks Bentley concert - he is definitely a star!

I LOVE this new set and you've used it beautifully! And who knew there were pink starfishes? Emma was one lucky gal to hold one in her hand, too!

I have never seen a starfish irl! It's no surprise, right, since I live on this salt-free 'ocean' but I'm thrilled to see this darling girl's wish came true! OMG PINK??? who knew?
Now let's drool over your darling card a bit... what a gorgeous bow that is! I'm going in for a close-up, Linda however did they do this?
Wonderful card - LOve the fresh fig!

Sweet card, Linda! I haven't even popped the lid on Soft Seafoam yet and it looks lovely on your card. You've inspired me to try it!

I've been to the beach a million times and I have never seen a starfish - not to mention a pink one! What lucky girl Emma is! Now on to your card. I am loving this color combo. It's perfect for your sheaf of wheat (at least I hope that's what it is!!). And I saw that bow in catalog and loved it. Is it wrong to spend money on a big stamp set just because you want one stamp in it?
