"Under the sea" is the theme this month
at Patties Creations...

Gotta say - this is one of my favourite cards.
As soon as I saw those lovely seashells, I knew what 
I wanted to do with them. 
The white sakura pen and the turquoise puddle paper really help 
to set off those shells, which I coloured with
my alcohol pens... just about every brown, in every type of pen I have! 
What is brilliant about this "6 seashells" digi set,
is that you get separate images... 6 in all. 
As you can see, I used 5 of them, as I knew how I wanted
them to be arranged.

The stamped sentiment is from Inkylicious.
To finish the card, I dry embossed the edges.
