The Card Concept Challenge #158-Long Summer Days

Hello my crafty friends!!!
Today is our last challenge for the summer
at the 

We will return this fall!

Look at our gorgeous inspiration board for our last summer challenge:


I was inspired by the pretty blues and starfish to create my Clean & Layered style card.


The starfish and sand dollars were cut with dies from Hero Arts called Seashells Fancy DiesI love the stitched edges on the starfish! I added some Diamond Stickles to the centers of the sand dollars and the starfish.


The background was made by layering the different shades of card stock which I die cut using a die from Reverse Confetti called Doin the Wave. The sentiment is from a very old stamp set from MFT called All Occasion Sentiments. It may not be available anymore, which is too bad, because I have used it MANY times!!!!!




 I hope I have inspired you to create a card or project to share with us!!!

The style of my card would be considered

CLEAN & LAYERED
~Clean lines
