Oceans Delight

Hello Everyone,

For today I am entering one card into four challenges; Just Us Girls, Sweet Stampin', and The Paper Players. Each challenge was very important for this design. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

The crashing wave was actually so easy to make it made me laugh. All you so stamp
some Gorgeous Grunge and heat emboss it white. The Memory Box die cut waves are made of vellum
for translucency. The shells are so delightful with this scene.
As you can see the layout from The Paper Players is represented by the three neutrals, main focal point image
and banner. All I did was condense it a bit.

Details showing the swirls and pearls! The three pearls at the corner of the sentiment added the perfect amount of embellishment. And again a close up of the shells colored using PrismaColor colored pencils.

Challenges Entered:
Just Us Girls: Photo Week- #336
Sweet Stampin': Swirls and Pearls
The Paper Players: PP288

Swirls and Pearls
A few years ago my family went to Cape Cod Massachusetts to visit my mother. There we got a personal tour of the local waterways, sea wildlife, and Shelly Island! Well that is what my daughter coined the island. This place was incredible! The entire island was chuck full of complete hardly damaged shells. They were just laying around in heaps and piles all done by nature. It was shell overload for myself and my children. Thank goodness we didn't fly home because we took our weight in shells with us!

It was a magical place for all and I am sure some of you have even visited 'Shelly Island'. Making this card brought back these memories and all I could do was smile. 

Thank you so much for joining me at TheGrandStampede. I do hope you enjoyed your visit. If you feel so inclined to leave a message that would be great! If not that is fine too, I am just happy you dropped by.. Have a great day and until next time, take care.

All the Best,
