Shell Beauty

I have been inspired by this gorgeous card by Linda Duke using the Spellbinders® Shell Beauty 3D M-Bossabilities™ folder and have unashamedly CASED her - (Copy And Share Everything!) 

 Although, I did follow the rules and changes two things....one of them being that I used

IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Brilliance™ Pigment Ink rather than Glimmer sprays.  I was so inspired by the way Linda used the Shell Beauty Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™ folder - but seriously - who wouldn't be!!

The second change is that I have used the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and the Framed Tags One Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® for my tagI have to say it was tough to change anything - Linda Duke's card are 'divine' and perfect in every way!!

This card is for the following challenges:
