Seashells and Flowers

I’ve always loved the combination of seashells and flowers.  To create the background for this card I first stamped and embossed a piece of cardstock using a rubber stamp with a music sheet pattern.  Next, I drew and oval with a pencil to serve as a guide.  I tore printed paper and glued the pieces around the edge of the card with some pieces slightly overlapping the penciled oval.  I redrew the oval with a red marker then added as few more torn pieces.  For the focal point I stamped, embossed and cutout seashells then inserted flowers.  For the final touch I added a brown rub-on swirl and a postage stamp.
