The Card Concept Challenge # 111-Sea Shells

Hello stamping friends! So glad you 're here!!!
Look at this inspiration photo for our new challenge 
here at the Card Concept!  
Isn't it FABULOUS?!?!

That cool blue and those pretty seashells!
I was so inspired by that beautiful blue background.

Here is my card:

I started with my background panel. I took a  4 1/4 X 5 1/2  piece of Fine Linen (PTI) card stock and scored it on my scoreboard at 1/2 inch intervals. Next I sponged Broken China Distress Oxide ink (lightly) over the entire piece.  Then I sponged the lines and edges with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I wanted it to look like a piece of wood.

The shells and starfish  (Stamps of Life-shells2stamp) were also die cut with Fine Linen (PTI) card stock.  I sponged them with Antique Linen  and Walnut Stain Oxide Distress inks, and just a little Broken China here and there. I added a charm and some linen thread to the sentiment for some texture.

The style of my card would be considered

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space
