Shellabrate!

In my quest to be ahead of the game for holiday cards this year, I made a handful of them with my favorite theme - beach!! A few years ago I wanted to get my hands on a set of SU!s called Sunny Seasons Greetings, and I never got it. I have wanted it ever since. So this year when I saw a beachy theme for the holidays, I wasted NO time in purchasing that set! So this is the first one I came up with, but there will definitely be more to come! It's also using the SCS sketch SC196 (sortof). Here's the card:Sets: Shellabrate, Totally Tabs
Colors: Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Barely Banana, Kraft
Other: tab punch, SU markers, paper piercing tools, clear EP, 2-way glue pen, dazzling diamonds, hemp twine, CB swirl and Swiss Dots embossing folders

To get the sentiment shiny, it's my Close to Cocoa craft pad and clear EP over the top. The shell "tree" is super glittery all over, but you only see highlights in the photo, as usual. I hope you like it anyway!
