By the Sea, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea

I discovered a new challenge that looks like fun- Stampin' B's Design Team. I like their Mission Statement: "We stamp for the utter enjoyment of stamping. Rules be damned! We will enjoy each other's creations by commenting on them, praising them, and NEVER having a negative impact on another person's stamping in any way!" Their challenge this week is by Joanne- to make a Seashore Card.
I used an old stamp from Stampendous " Beach Day" and stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on kraft paper and colored with pencils and OMS. I used the Spellbinders Impressabilities Sea Scape to emboss a mat of kraft cs and inked with the Rich Cocoa. Cut a "frame" in the mat with Nesties Rectangle Die for the stamped image and assembled all on base card. Tucked a sentiment in the shells "Life is Good".

Now I wish that I were by the sea enjoying the sound of the waves and the warmth of the sand. Want to join me?
