Unique as a Seashell

Hello, and happy Monday Dies R Us friends!  I have a beachy card to share today, with beachy stamps and some nice beachy dies to go with them.  I reached far, far into the past for a stamp set that hasn’t seen the light of day for a while.  It’s a Lizzie Anne set called “Shore Thoughts”.  I don’t think Lizzie Anne stamps are even made anymore.  I went all pastel and light and airy right down to the pink seashells.  When you’re making it yourself you can do that, right?  The gauzy background is an old Stampin’ Up! background stamp called “Cheesecloth”.  It’s good to get the old stuff out now and then, isn’t it?

I framed the pretty seashell stamp with Memory Box Stitched Scalloped Circles.  To soften the background so it wouldn’t compete with the focal image I placed a vellum circle inside the frame.  My fantasy-pink seashell die cuts which embellish the corner are Impression Obsession Shell Set.  There’s more inside with Impression Obsession Mini Shell Set:

Very beachy!  Can’t you just feel those summer breezes?  Don’t forget to join the fun at our Challenge Blog.  We're seeing "Red" this week and we'd love to see your red, too.  Have a happy day!
