Sand Pail card

All these pieces are cut from scraps! :)  I know the background yellow and red layer is from the DCWV summer stack from last year.  I thought it fit the summery/beach feel of this card well.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts "Big Hugs" stamp set.  I added a ribbon along the top and bottom of the sentiment box using my ATG tape. Two self stick black gems and a Prima Itty Bitty flower (with matching ribbon tail) finish off the sentiment block.

The sand pail is from Simply Charmed. I cut all layers at 2 1/2". The sea shells are from Stretch Your Imagination. I cut two sets of them at 1" out of white shimmery paper, giving them a lovely shiny fresh-from-the-ocean look. I added the shells to the sand pail layer and matched the shadows behind the shells where they came beyond the sand layer.

Here is a close up of the shells, sitting neatly on the sand layer (DCWV photo stack). I added white gel pen stitches and doodles through out the card. I use a Gelly Roll brand pen.

 The inside of the card also got some of the matching scraps.
