For the second card with this set, I thought that blues would be nice. I started off with a once stamped off Bordering Blue seashell. I placed a birthday greeting over top, added some brads and lots of distressed edges. The chocolate layer behind it has some embossed seashells. Originally I was only going with to use bordering blue and sahara sand, but then I found this striped paper from a few SU! catalogs back. The ribbon is some nice saddle stitched grosgrain that I got in a grab bag from Dunwoody Booth.
