Seashell Background


Hello!  I am back with another nautical theme card using a sketch from the challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I made the background for the card using Spellbinders Impressabilities Sea Scape as a stencil using Distress Oxide ink on White CS Panel. The seashells pattern was inspired by the Mood Board from Double D Nautical Challenge. I used a textured blue CS as the card base and a rectangle  of the same CS to mat the Sentiment stamped in DOI Faded Jean on a die cut oval of white CS.  To keep in the nautical theme, for an embellishment, I added a Lighthouse button with "white rope". 
Challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches: #461 Sketch
Double D Challenges: Nautical.  Inspired by Seashells and colors in Mood Board.
The Paper Girls Challenge: #155 Buttons.  Used another of my buttons from stash of decorative Sea buttons. 



Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
