Hello All,

For today I am playing along with Color Throwdown. Their palette this week is awe inspiring. When I thought about the colors I thought about seashells. Here is my card for today, Enjoy!

The shell background was stamped in charcoal ink then
colored using PrismaColor pencils. I blended four colors for color and depth.
Added a bit of sparkle with some sequins.
Washi tape creates the banner for the sentiment.
I thought the sentiment would be perfect for this type of card.
I also added the flourish shell for a bit more charm. 
The stippling around the shells adds the texture of sand.
Entering Challenges:

Yesterday my daughter turned ten. It seems hard to believe that ten years ago I held a baby that we so desperately wanted and loved so much. She has surpassed every expectation I had for her; she is kind, thoughtful, creative and slapstick funny! Ten years ago I had to start sharing my daughter with the world and I'm glad I did; because I believe the world is a better place with her in it. Happy Birthday sweet girl!

All the best,

When I saw the card I was convinced that I use the finished carton craft in this beautiful pattern. When I read the post turned out that the panel is your work card. It's very beautiful.
