Just swimming by.....

The new challenge starts today at Shelly's Images
and we are featuring the "Wish Upon a Star" digi.
Be sure to stop in at the Shelly's Images blog to see the projects made by the other amazing designers we have at Shelly's Images.

For my project I decided to make a "Triple Easel" Card.  I wasn't sure exactly how this digi stamp would work but I really love how it all came together.  
I do want to thank CraftsdotCupcake for her wonderful YouTube video and the inspiration for my project.
Triple Easel card closed with matching envelope
And open to reveal the inside sentiment

The sentiment is popped up to hold the center easel.  The two sides have actual shell pieces
from Anna Maria Island and a bit of lace to hold the side easels.
Side view to show the easel parts
And the inside.  Thanks again to CraftsdotCupcake for the inspiration.
I love having a full inside for writing a note to the card recipient.

My base card measures 4 1/2 by 5 1/2
I used the Envelope Punch Board to make my envelope
The patterned paper is "Brave Boy" gingham from my mind's eye
I used Kraft for the card base
The lace was sent to me by my friend and Shelly's Images DT Member Amanda
Sentiment - Available soon at Shelly's Images
Shells from Anna Maria Island, Florida
Image Wish Upon a Star from Shelly's Images colored with Copics and white highlights with Copic Opaque White

Thanks so much for dropping in.  I hope you enjoyed this fun project.
