Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells

 Welcome to the Thursday Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge and here is what I created for it using the Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set. I'm entering my card in Challenge #547 at Krafty Chicks as I feel it is clean and simple (CAS).

Here is our sketch.

My card base is Blushing Bride. I stamped the top portion with shell stamps from Friends Are Like Seashells. The bottom portion is a strip of Sand and Sea Designer Series Paper.  The narrow strip is also from the same 12 x 12 pack of DSP. The card front is embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock, sponged the edges with So Saffron Ink and raised it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  
I added three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Easy peasy and done!

For the inside I used more stamps from the set and matted the Basic White on a piece of So Saffron cardstock.
