The Beach Calls My Name...

Hello and welcome new followers:  Joejaykandi, Sanda, Vicki, Emily T, Shelly S, 3ickleangels, Judith, Benzi, Zella, aussie aNNie, Danielle V, and Debi.  If I missed anyone, let me know and if I repeated your welcome, you are welcome again!

What inspired the card I will share with you today?  We haven't been to the beach in quite a while and the beach is calling my name.  It was cold and gray when we went last winter so we should try to go again while the sun is out.  That is what inspired this card using Diane's Daydream Designs digis.  I couldn't decide how many of the shells to pop up so it turned out to be a fairly flat card.  Easy peasy mailing!

I love to use burlap with blue and so I was happy to use Diane's pre-colored image for the card. My Cuttlebug shell dies and wood-grained embossing folder seemed just right to finish off the card.  

I couldn't decide how many of the shells to pop up so it turned out to be a fairly flat card.  Easy peasy mailing!
