I was intrigued by the photo inspiration at Time Out and wanted to make a card that reflected the elements that jumped out at me which was the vibrant orange and the crisp white of the sea shells. I had a rummage in my stamp stash and came up with this using some old Hero Arts stamps....
I stamped and white embossed the sea shell multiple times before blending Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral over the top. I die cut a square in the middle to create a frame and stamped a Hero Arts birthday sentiment in the middle. It is very simple but I think that the vibrant oranges really pop!
I hope you like it!
Here is the inspiration from Time Out:
I shall also link up at the Clean and Simple Challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the colours that I have used on my card work with the lovely autumnal inspiration board.
Thanks for stopping by,
