More Seashells

Here I go with the July Journaling set again. I LOVE the seashells, I guess you can tell that right :)

I made these two cards for sketch challenges. This first one uses the SCS Sketch for this week. It's really a clean and simple card. I used a border punch on the bottom that kind of mimics the water as it comes in on the beach and I used soft green and sand colors, they make me happy :)

This one uses a sketch from the Just Christmas and Birthdays blog, but mine isn't for Christmas or a birthday, I just really liked the sketch and I love this paper with the beachy text on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
