She Sells Sea Shells By The Sea Shore

I made this card for the Michael Strong's Yahoo group September challenge - Traditional Cloisonné Card.
I used gold canvas textured CS for the background, distressed all around its edges.
On top of it there's a cream CS, embossed with tiny bubbles through the Cuttlebug and colored with Ranger's distress ink (Broken China).
The turquoise CS was punched with Martha Stewart's border punch.
The main motif is Michael Strong's Cloisonné Shell, stamped and heat embossed with gold EP.
I colored the shell with Ranger's distress inks (Broken China, Vintage Photo and Scattered Straw), using ear cleaning sticks for coloring.
The shell was glued 3D for extra dimension.
I added a few turquoise blings in varios sizes, all reminding me of the sea.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly
