Summer, sea and shells.

Today’s card was made with inspiration of summer, sea and shells.  I spotted a jar of shells in a shop while just have a looking randomly as I was waiting for somebody. A few days later I was able to put them to good use and have made more cards using shells since, which I hope to post soon. As I haven’t got a sea-side inspired stamp, I went with a country themed one instead for this card.

After distressing the whole back2basic card blank in blue I added dark blue frames to the various bits and attacked it all with the glue. The ribbon and bow went on next, before I added three flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a few shells from elsewhere both to be decoration and useful by holding the card in place while stood up. The stamp I used is a Sarah Kay one through Stampavie coloured with copics, of course. Below you can see the card with focus on the top half as well as a view of the entire card.
