Another Double Challenge

This is a double challenge card that I made last night. It was way late, I know. This combines Color combination 172 and sketch challenge 182 from Splitcoast. When I first read the colors, I was a bit skeptical. Looking at them together though, screamed BEACH to me. I had recently received some SU Stipple shells images through the PIF thread and so I decided that the beach was definitely in my futre :-) The smallest teal panels are embossed with sea shells or sea horses..both of these from a double sided embossing plate made by Spellbinders (really, what did I ever do without that company???) The center of the sand dollars have crystal effects on them for a raised look. I used the scor-pal to create a grid on my base so I would get the squares lined up correctly... All the coloring is with Twinkling H20s. I just love that shimmer. I also used some of the "not so new anymore" silver HPH and some white organdy ribbon. The main image panel and the conch shell are popped up on dimensionals. Let me know what you think and thanks for coming to check out my little blog!
