Gathering Seashells By the Sea

I love the beach. Since I live far FAR away from the beach, though, I very rarely get to go there. So I like to go there in my dreams.

This month I also got to go there in my Working Studio, because Vickie sent a gorgeous seashell-themed image to the Mystery Image group for our July cards. THANK YOU Vickie!

Stampendous "Seashell Jar"

I chose subtle papers so as not to overwhelm the softly-colored image.

I. love. the. image!

Here's the inside:

So lovely, Jeanette - I love how simple the card is to let the image just shine. We live right on the beach so I'll be sure to visit for you, too!
