Sand Castles!

I had a lot of fun with this card. I dyed my White Gala Glitz Art Glitter with Walnut Ink Tintz Tea Stain so I would get some shiny sand. Embossed the shells across the middle with tea dye Distress embossing powder so it would feel like sand. Colored my image with Copic markers, I'm kind of getting the hang of it. You can't really tell it in the picture but I accidentally picked up a piece of Shimmery White card stock in stead of Whisper White, so my girl has a sparkly tan in just the right light.Then I found these 2 little charms in my stash and Wah Lah I think just the right finishing touch.
