Stampin' Up! Friends are Like Seashells for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to another HITBH! If you came from Sue Prather's site, I'm glad you are continuing the hop. If you haven't then I hope you'll continue to hop using my links below. No matter what, I'm glad you're here. Today we have a sketch challenge and here is what I created for it...

My card base is Bermuda Bay that was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and here's our sketch...

I used Pearlescent Specialty Paper for my cut outs from the Seaside Seashells Dies, and sponged them with So Saffron Ink and Mint Macaron Ink. I adhered them to a panel of Simply Marbelous DSP. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Friends are Like Seashells Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay.

I used the Special Moments Stamp Set (free w/$50 order during SAB) on the inside...
and more of the die cut shells from the Seaside Seashells Dies. All the shells are embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

My colors were inspired by LeAnne's challenge at The Paper Players: PP578.
