Addicted to CAS #107

Barb has chosen 'seaside' as our code word at Addicted to CAS this week. This conjured up so many images for me.  When we used to be Alabama snowbirds, my husband and I walked the beach almost every day and picked up shells along the way. That's what inspired my card.
I used my MFT Sea Life dies to make this little scene on the watercolored sky and sand.  I cut the starfish and sand dollar from coaster paper, adding gesso to the sand dollar and colored texture paste to the starfish. The other shells were cut from a scrap of inked paper in my stash.  It took a while to find a sentiment - always a dilemma for me - but went with this one from PTI embossed in white.

Stamplorations is the sponsor for this challenge and are offering a $10 voucher to their store.
The Design Team has some wonderful inspiration for you over at the ATCAS blog.  Check them out and then enter your card in the gallery.
