Design Team Showoff Day.

Hello everyone!! I know I have been missing for a bit, but with good reason. I was away last week at Donna Downeys Inspired Artist Workshop~ more on that later~ and my niece made her Fissrt Holy Communion, so my perents flew in from NY for the week.
But here is my submission for this weeks card on the wondeful Artful Legacy Blog. Do check out what all the other design team members have created. http://artfullegacyrubberstamps.blogspot.com.
I have made a 6 by 6 card with the stamps Lg Shell Cluster AL 348J and Come Walk With Me ALS 1276 J.
I used the shell cluster stamp to make my own designer paper by stamping it several times in SU Blue Bayou (disc) ink all over a white piece of cardstock. I then cut it to size and glittered key parts of each shell. I then stamped my sentiment in Memento Black and trimmed it with both a oval and scalloped oval Nestie. I chalked the edges in aqua ink and used pop dots to add some dimension. Then I chose some sheer ribbon which reminded me of little frothy whitecaps near the shore and made it into a bow. I left one of the tails long and twisted it around a bit and attached that with a small glue dot.
It is just so pretty in real life. The colors of the blues and white are so crisp and clean.
The inside has been left blank.

Many thanks for stopping by...
