Quilled Starfish, Sea Shells Tag Ocean Theme

Tuesday Alchemy's Challenge #17 is Sand, Surf & Sea this week! Time to celebrate summer and World Ocean Day on June 8th! We're all preparing for our blog hop next week, so check back in for prizes and surprises! :)

I made a tag from white cardstock. This was my attempt at quilling a starfish. The 2 shells were picked up from a beach in St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Florida two years ago when I went on a road trip down the east coast of the US. The sentiment was wet embossed in white. 
Last week we won front row seats to see Book of Mormon on Broadway! The show was hilarious! The acting was fantastic too! We entered the lottery about 40 times before winning and I won more tickets for a fan performance tomorrow! I've never seen the same broadway show twice before now and to see it back to back weeks is like a dream! I'll be taking my cousin instead of my bf this time. It has been sold out for a year now and regular tickets for a year in advance is about 200-500 dollars a ticket! Feeling very lucky! :)

Anyway, hope to see you play along! The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $15 Gift Certificate from Rhoda Design Studio--Wow!

This tag is also entered in DYSU #74 - Under the SeaMIM #92, and Pixie Challenge #129.
