The new Graphic 45 By The Sea Collection is here just in time to say goodbye to winter! This brings back such fun vacations at the beach! Aren't these two just precious?

The sea shells were fussy cut from the 8x8 pad and combined with the new shell dies from IO. I used E41 to shade the shell die edges. 

The cute fish stamps were framed with MFT Postage Stamp Dies. Clear embossing powder was heat embossed to give the stamps and shells a natural sheen.

I enjoy working on the inside of a card as much as the front! 

The colors in this collection are the ginghams!
