Beach themed Circle shaped Card

I found this digital company recently and fell in love with their images.  Even if your not a digi fan, I think these images will tempt you to give a try.  So when your done here, take a minute to check out Isabella's Sketchbook.  I double dog dare you!  And if you decide to give them a try, let me know if I helped to convert you!

OH, and guess what??  I played along with their challenge blog last week and won!!  Wooowhooo!!  Check out the Challenge Blog HERE

 
I just love that these 2 friends seem so joyful just being together.  So I used the sentiment "Life's a beach with a friend like you".
I used Beach Fun, Shell 1, Shell 2, Shell 3.  Oh no!!  And I just realized while linking this up that there is a Shell 4.  How did I miss that one!?!?  The shells are much bigger in the original file.  That's the fun thing about digital images, you can resize them to fit your design!

DP : Memory Box 6x6 Paper Pad - Spearmint
I love the soft colors of this pad
Ink : Versa Magic Oasis Green (around the edges of both circles)
Coluzzel extra lg circle template
Spellbinders die
ribbon - unknown
Chalk : Pebbles Inc
I used an aqua on the outer area and then transitioned into a light green.  You can barely see it in the photo, but in real life it adds so much.  I use these alot.
The "Shimmer" Chalks are the best because they go on and blend the best to me.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

I love the shell idea. I have alot of beach digis and it never dawned on me that I could use the shell digis like that.

This is one terrific card, Melissa. Brilliant the way you reduced the size of the shell images and used them as embellishments. I honestly never thought about doing that - thank for the inspiration! So happy you could join in the fun this week at Isabella's Sketchbook and Our Creative Corner!

Lovely card -- the "beach friends" and shells turned out beautifully! The soft colors are gorgeous! I went to dr. yesterday, got meds, and am feeling much better today.
