Has a wonderful beach look to it. Like the arrangement/layout. Like the MS seas shell edge punch. I like all things sea shell. Have a sea shell collection in my master bathroom. Wallpaper theme of master bathroom is beach/sand castles/sea shells.

Beautiful card Brenda, and so clever to use your sand paper to keep with your seaside theme.
