Shells for a bridal shower

Hello there!


This is a card I made for my sweet niece's bridal shower.  She lives along the Gulf Coast in Florida, and I was unable to attend the shower (but we did go to the wedding!).  Her wedding theme was all about the beach.  So, I made something very reminiscent of the shore.


A tumble of shells, and a "sandy" background, a sprinkling of sequins....
and a simple tag tied on with hemp cord.


There's even a "wave", made with Pool Party cardstock and a Memory Box die called Elegant Scrollwork (I use that one a lot).

I'm pleased as punch (er, or a die cut!) with the way this turned out. :-)
