Flourishes Seaside Life



Hi everyone! Here's a card I uploaded to SCS last Tuesday. It was for the Timeless Tuesday challenge, which was hosted by none other than my girl Silke. Her challenge was to add scoring somewhere on the card. I scored stripes into the vellum panel. I also combined it with Mercy's Sketch #34. Flourishes stamps including this one are available at Stamper's Dream.

The tag and three of the shells are up on foam tape. The shells were stamped in Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel ink onto MME French Flea Market DP (the reverse side of the blue *Sweetness To Me* pattern). The matting and card base is Prism Suede.
