Simply Nautical

Although my house is filled with cards I've made over the years, I couldn't find exactly what a I wanted to send to a friend. So I pulled out some lovely Graphic 45 papers and a Spellbinders die set.

I get such a kick out of this fun kraken design from the By the Sea collection. I cut the shells from a shiny, textured Core'dinations paper and sanded them a bit. The sentiment sticker (Starform) is actually silver, colored with a Copic marker (Honey/Y38). The blue mesh is recycled from a bag of pearl onions.
