Moxie Fab - Tuesday Trigger & Everything But the Kitchen Sink

This week's Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger is a beach cottage bedroom from Coastal Living Magazine submitted by Kazan Clark. I have to tell you these colors are in my guest room and living in Florida I am always inspired by summery images...even though it is winter here now and at 50 degrees, it's freezing to us ~ sorry everyone up North and in the Mid-West, but it IS cold :(

I also think this card qualifies for EBTKS's Challenge this week ~ *Use wrapping paper in your creation!
My card is for my niece's birthday~she lives in the North East and really hates the cold, so I thought this would warm her up.
Details ~
Stamps: Seashell Border and Warm Wishes sentiment are from "Stamping Cabana" (which used to be a local stamp/craft store in this area 6-7 years back), Adirondack Chair and Shells is from "Inkadinkado"
