By the beautiful sea...

Good morning fellow die cut crafters!

Vicki here to share some summertime inspiration with you.  Summer began a few days ago and that means beach time!  I love walking on the beach both in the early morning and late evening. 
Collecting shells along the way is a favorite pastime and helped inspire my card...
"The Sea..."

This card was created in my favorite square format of 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".  I found some very old Worldwin embossed cardstock in my stash that was perfect for the water background.  The net was cut from gold matte paper.  I think this is going to be on my list of favorite die cuts.  It is so awesome!  The seashell border is cut from the same coral cardstock that I used as matting for the background and behind the sentiment. 

I added some color and sparkle to the seashells with distress inks and clear rock candy glitter.

A few dew drops for water droplets and a pearl dew drop for the clam shell.
The following die cuts were used and are available in the DRUS Store...
