By The Seashore and a Sketch

This week we have a wonderful sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.   I just had to use a few of my pre-ordered goodies from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog for the sketch, plus a favorite current set, By the Seashore.

 Isn't this new Lost Lagoon (the deeper aqua green) pretty!  It works perfectly with SU's Soft Sky color and the Hello Honey is very complimentary!
The papers in the background are from the new Moonlight DSP Stack.  The large dotted design also has Basic Gray in it, and that's what color the stamping is done in also.
I stamped the sand dollar and starfish onto Soft Sky cardstock then added some Lost Lagoon color with a Blender Pen.  I lightly used the White Chalk Marker to give some highlights and adhered them with Dimensionals.  I thought Pearls would look just right for this sea-themed card too!

Stamps:  By the Seashore, From My Heart (sentiment)
Inks:  Basic Gray, Lost Lagoon, White Chalk Marker
Paper:  Moonlight DSP; Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey cardstock
Accessories:  Blender Pen, Big Shot, Dots Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls

Here is the great sketch we have this week: 
Be sure to check out the cards by the other members of the Challenge Design Team then we hope you will take the challenge yourself to make a card using this sketch!  All the guidelines are on the same post as the Design Team's cards here:  Create with Connie and Mary.

Be sure to post your creation somewhere online then upload it to the CWCM website link!  We'd love to see what you do with it!

Thanks for visiting today!!  Stamp on!

Margaret, your card is beautiful. I love anything to do with the ocean/beach! Love how you incorporated the paper and I never thought of it but yes, pearls are a perfect embellishment for a sea theme.
