Seashell Card

Hi again! This card I made this afternoon, figuring I better get a move on since my swap is due next week! Yikes! I start with an idea in mind then I just sit and stare endlessly at my colors and end up with an entirely different card than what I started with. This one began as a dolphin card with turquoise blue colors, now , how on earth did I end up with a cream toned card with a shell on it? It is a mystery! Anyway, please enjoy! The pictures do not capture the pearl of the Bazzil Bling cardstock, but it really made the card pretty!

Working on the card swaps!

Hello! I am working ...slowly... on my card swaps. Fortunately, I can use my cards for Etsy and to swap. Then I thought, why must only one person get to share the card... we all love to see others work, so I am going to put some of the swap cards up to view on the blog! Enjoy! My style is simple so it should not be hard to duplicate this card.

The stamp set is from october pumpkin at

I used a sandollar punch from Martha Stewart and watercolored the Manatee with watercolor pencils. The textured cardstock and card are from Die Cuts with a View.

Have a great day! I am off to create a new card for the beach swap! Stephanie
