Don't Grow Up Too Quickly!

What a great CAS sketch over at Split Coast this week - oddly enough - I made a CAS card with it!!
I just love my new Gina K 'Gifts From the Sea' Stamp set! It has such wonderful sentiments in it as well as lots of different shell and star fish stamps. I found out about this set on my good stamping friend, Vicki's blog ,where she used this sentiment on her cute crabby card!
I have several friends who love the ocean ( I mean REALLY love the ocean!), so I'm sure to get a lot of use out of this set. This card will be going postal to one of them for their birthday in May.
The sentiment says "Don't grow up too quickly, lest you forget how much you love the beach." Inside I stamped 'Happy Birthday' which is another stamp in this versatile set!
I normally would have popped this pretty shell up on foam tape - but I'm really trying to keep my cards 'flat' when I know I'm mailing them to avoid extra postage!
Thanks for coming by today - I'll be back on Saturday with my Waltzingmouse Sketch card!

I love shells and your card is really pretty. I have always wished I had SU Along the Shore set.
