TSSC265 Challenge

Good Monday morning and Happy Memorial Day all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and hope this holiday is wonderful.  First let me remind you that our LNS challenge is now going for two weeks and if you are looking for that challenge, see this post!  This card of course was inspired by this weeks sketch over at Techno Stampers.  Please join us this week for this fabulous sketch.  Since today kicks off our beach season here in Wilmington, NC, I thought I would use the seashells that we have. I just love them.  What I did here was to used the embossing technique two ways.  I used heat embossing on the sentiment and the shells and of course used the perfect polka dots embossing folder for the background.  Here is my sample!

Here is a close up of the embossed shells and sentiment!
