Shell Sentiments for June Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Andrea Sherman's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired!  

My card features a shell stamped with Black and Sapphire pigment inks onto Bashful Glitter paper over a Sapphire oval, Pomegranate banner and Bashful Pink cardstock.  The focal image and greeting sentiment are from Shell Sentiments from the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog.  (If you click here you can see another color scheme for this lovely shell stamp.)

My card layout was inspired by this fabulous Sunday Stamps Sketch:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
     Double Trouble #2--No Patterned Papers
     Sparkles Monthly Challenge--Sea Shells

Now head on over to Joyce Hauck's blog.  I'm sure you'll be inspired by her project! 
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
:) Marie
