TERRIFICIALLY THRILLING THURSDAY AT SHELLY'S IMAGES

It's Thursdays that I love, cos I get to share another project using one of the fabulous images from Shelly's Images.

Today, the Design Team has used "Seashell 2" and oh boy, have they outdone themselves!  I feel embarrassed to say that I only made a single fold card :

These are the elements I used on my card:
- Seashell 2 image printed on kraft and coloured using watercolour pencils
- a page out of an old dictionary with the word "shell' on it
- DP offcut (fisherman's notebook theme)
- vintage ship's steering wheel button
- assorted shells
- square brads
- raffia
- Sentiment stick-on

Remember it is available to you TODAY ONLY at a REDUCED RATE.  So be sure to pop over to the store right away for this image and be sure to check out all the other new images Shelly's been creating for you!

And now on to the challenge. This week it's one of our favourites :
