Seagulls at the Beach

 Today I have a fun summer birthday card to share.  

There's nothing like seagulls flying around you when you're at the beach trying to eat your lunch, right? They are even in  mall parking lots looking for food!    (Many of us remember the 'Mine, Mine' the seagulls were squawking on the movie Finding Nemo, right?!  My sister and I could not stop cracking up when we watched that movie.)

I adhered a piece of ocean DP over the card base.  I die cut a polaroid frame from Whimsey Stamps and stenciled the seagull head inside of it.  The seagull stencil, the bucket of fries, the umbrella stencil and dies and sentiments are all from Waffle Flower.  

I'm linking my card to:

What a fun card. I have just spent a few days at the seaside and the seagulls where there too. It was too cold to hang arounf on the beach for long so the gulls had slim pickings xx

I adore the story that you tell with this card. So fun and adorable too. Very creative to use a photo frame for the seagull. So glad that you joined us at Double D Challenge.

Fabulous summer beach card, Julia! And it's making me fancy some fries, preferably eaten while sitting on the beach! The seagulls here definitely scrounge for fries!

And now your card karacks me up, sis! I can't remember where, but I've seen this set before and I love it! (I'm not a huge fan of seagulls, but I LOVEEEEEEE French fries!🤣) The Polaroid frame and fancy umbrella are icing on the cake. Thank you for inspiring everyone to use their NBUS! Great to see you today! Hugs, Darnell
