This card is for the F4A62 challenge to use lots of layers on your card. This is also for the CC320 color challenge to use Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery.
For the shell, I stamped crumb cake on blush blossom cs and sponged celery on the edges. The seahorse is stamped in Certainly Celery on vanilla layered with Frosted Lace stickles on the fins and baja breeze is sponged on the edges. The big starfish is stamped in Baja Breeze on vanilla and sponged with Blushing Bride on the edges. The little starfish was stamped in bashful blue on vanilla and then layered with baby blue and frosted lace stickles. Each of these images were hand trimmed with my paper snips. I added a tiny turquoise pearl for the eye of the sea horse and a tiny pearl for the “o” of “You’re a Gem” stamp. A larger pearl was added on the big shell. The bashful blue cardstock was run through the d’vine swirls EF for this week’s CC dessert option of embossing. I used the Martha Stewart branch punch for my seaweed or coral (I haven’t decided which one it is supposed to be.)
Thanks for Looking!
