Scrappy Chick Sunday Sketch Challenge

Sorry its so late in the day, but I got sidetracked cleaning up my stamp room and basement.  I'm back for this week's new sketch challenge, but first, last week's winner...Allison H!  Email me your snail mail gf and I'll get your mica out to you!

For todays card I started with the new By the Sea stamp from Stampendous! that I heat embossed with Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel onto a pale pink cardstock.  I distressed the edges with a bit of Antique Linen distress ink from Ranger then added Rose Color Fragments by Stampendous! using a wet adhesive.

Here's a coser shot at the shell itself...

And the bottom portion of the stamp, the greeting is part of the whole stamp.

This week's sketch is below.   Feel free to rotate it or make it your own.  You have until Saturday March 3rd at 10pm EST to play along.  Please link your creation at the bottom of the post :)  

I chose my colors for today from this weeks Color Throwdown color challenge:

And , even though I didn't post yesterday with some of my Stampendous! teammates I wanted to remind you that you still have 2 weeks almost to enter this month's Stampendous challenge to add texture to your card!  (I added mine with the color fragments)
