July Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in the July Papertrey Ink Blog hop!  
Here is the inspiration photo for this month.
Papertrey Ink has had several ocean/beach themed stamps and dies released the past two months and I think I bought just about all of them!   
Here is my card.  I was inspired by the colors and several of the ocean flora and fauna images!
I used the Reef Builder Die Set and Shape Shifters: Oval 2 die for my card, cutting them all out in 3 shades of blue, white and red.  The sentiments are from Sentiment Staples - Thinking of You.  
I added Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel drops in the little ovals on the top of the blue/red plant in the bottom right corner..

I have a dear friend at church that is having some health issues that aren't quite diagnosed yet and this will card will be going to her, hopefully to bring her some comfort.

I can't wait to see how everyone interprets the inspiration photo this month -  you have 12 hours to load up your card - you'll find the link at the Papertrey Ink Blog here.

What a FABULOUS card Julia! Aren't all the new ocean themed stamps and dies so much FUN to work with?! I didn't get the reef builder set and am now wishing I had...love how you used the red on the tops of those cool looking little coral pieces (not sure what you call them!). This will definitely brighten up your friends day when she receives this lovely, lovely card!! :0)
