Down by the sea

 This month, Pattie has some new images in her store and I have used one...
Nautical Circle Shell Frame....

As soon as Pattie shared this with us, I knew what I wanted
to do with this wonderful image. 

I coloured her image with my promarkers and other alcohol pens,
and made an extra copy of the starfish and front shell. 
I used 3d foam on these and placed the large shell on top of itself
and the starfish along the other side of the frame.
There are 2 papers inside the frame...the sand and the sea, 
which I carefully tipped to make a wave-like edge.
I dry embossed the outside edge of the card and inked the edge of the image card. 
The little splashes are teeny stickers I found in my stash. 
I stamped the sentiment and added a die-cut bird.

I am happy with the way this one came out.
