Sea Shells

Hello.  Welcome.  Still wishing for summer.  

The inspiration photo at AAA Cards had me reaching for the Stamploration Snowy Hills dies.  From snowy hills to sandy beach!  I embossed with the dies on my cream card base.  I gave the 'beach' a watercolour wash with distress ink and stamped the Rubber Dance shells and sentiment also with distress inks.  The shells were stamped and fussy cut.  The sentiment reads

'one cannot collect all the 
beautiful shells on the beach.  
One can only collect a few, 
and they are more beautiful
if they are few'

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
