Sea Shells by the Seashore with SCFF052314

Good morning and thanks for stopping by.  I don't know about you guys, but I had a wonderful fun filled three day holiday!  Even though some time was spent buying groceries for the week, cleaning house (don't, just a little) and washing some clothes (geez it never ends), I did make sure I found some "ME TIME" to get in my craft room and Play, Play, Play!!! 

Todays card is for a fun challenge site I came across.  Its called Sketch Frenzy Friday.  I hope you will hop over to take a look around their site and play along.  I had so much fun putting this card together for their easy and fun sketch challenge. 

I stamped two of the sea shells from the By the Tide and used my ink pads of calypso coral and pool party to brush on the ink to color them.  I just love how they turned out.  A kind of marble look.  My square in the middle is stamped with the wording stamp that also comes from By the Tide.  The polka dotted DSP is from the I Am Me pack.  My favorite parts of the card, is the added calypso coral bakers twine tied and cut and also the cute little banners off to the side of the main square.

Now on the inside, I stamped the coral twice and create one more sea shell.  I also added a cluster of three banners, all at different lengths to the top left corner.
I hope you have enjoyed my take on this sketch.  I know that this will be one challenge site, I will be playing with again!  Don't forget to leave some "love", as I always appreciate reading your comments.
