By the Tide

I am a beach lover!  Anything with seashells is fantastic in my book.  If you love the things children say, you will appreciate that my young niece asked me "Where is this book you keep talking about?"  She thought my Mom and I each had our own book.

This is the Mojo Monday sketch challenge #308:

I chose the square card.  On their website, you can see what everyone has created from the sketch.


When I first stamped the small oval, there was too much contrast between the Very Vanilla paper and the Early Espresso paper.  To soften the transition between the paper colors, I sponged the edge of the Very Vanilla oval with Soft Suede.  It also adds a vintage touch.

I totally borrowed the color scheme from a card that my friend made.  If she posts it on her blog, I will share the link so you can see another idea with this beautiful paper.
