And here is my card:
I went for a beach theme this week. I used one of the adorable new Sweet November Stamps, Penelope and Shelly, from CC Designs. I sponged the background panel to look like sand, water and sky. I colored the images with copics and then added crystal effects to the turtle's shell. I had this Designer Paper for awhile and thought it would look really cute with these stamps so I pulled it out and finally put it to use. If you have any beach pictures to scrapbook, this is a great image for that ~ it is larger than I had thought it would be and is the perfect size for a scrapbook page!
