Just Us Girls #366 - Photo Week

 Happy Saturday!  This week is Photo Week over at Just Us Girls, and Nancy has chosen this really cool seaside birthday cake as inspiration for us.
I honestly don't have many stamps with shells and starfish, but I did find this Dockside stamp set from WPlus9.  To start, I inked up an old background cheesecloth stamp from SU in Kraft ink and stamped it off before stamping on the white layer.  Then I stamped the rope in the Kraft ink as well.  The focal image was stamped and die cut with a pierced circle die and matted on a blue die cut piece.  That was mounted on craft foam for dimension.  I stamped the sentiment at the bottom and rounded the bottom corners before adhering it all together. 
I followed this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch, but had to put my sentiment at the bottom.  I hope I don't get thrown out of the challenge!
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our March guest on the JUGs blog.

I love this nautical beauty! The cheesecloth background is so perfect for a nautical theme. Love the rope and compass images.
