The Card Concept - Sunset at the Shore

Check out the new inspiration board over on The Card Concept blog!
 The theme this week is: Sunset at the Shore
Everyone is welcome to play along using the colors, the theme, 
textures, items, or just anything from the picture as your starting point.

I was inspired by the beach and the seashells to create this clean-and-layered card.

I really like the look of coloring on kraft card stock, but often forget to do it when I'm making a card. This time I chose kraft to match the sandy beach in the inspiration photo, and colored my image with Prismacolor Pencils.

You have done a fabulous job with your coloring on the kraft! I love the kraft background embossing with it too, great depth you have achieved with the die cut shells and then the birds flying from the scene, so cool!
