Classy Cards N Such - The Mighty Sea

My card today reminds me of a beautiful summer day at the beach with the waves rolling in and a nice cool breeze from the ocean.   It would be great to be on the beach looking at this wonderful view.

I started out coloring my image with Copics, I added white ink on the waves.  I used the Spellbinder A2 Filigree Delight die to cut my oval, and my frame from Black card stock. I cut a piece of French Country, Graphic 45 paper, to put behind my frame. l really love this paper.

I stamped my sentiment and matted it with the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B die. I had the sand dollars in my stash, but you could use the Shell Set by Impression Obsession.
