Now... on to my card details:

I made this tri-shutter card using stamps from the ODBD sets: Mighty Sea, The Sea, and Anchor (a past release).  I stamped the images with Memento and colored with Copic Markers.  I used SU! Close to Cocoa for my base, and Memory Box Poppyfinch designer paper.  The blue is Bazzill.  With my Grand Calibur, I cut several Spellbinders Dies:  Grommet Tags, Labels 11, Labels 17, and Labels 20I used the negative part of an EK Success Bracket Punch for the little blue "waves" I added.  The twine is "hung" on a part of an ODBD Fence DieThe little sand dollars are a K&Co self adhesive ribbon which I cut apart to use as single shells.  Below is a close up of the fish netting I created  with a re-purposed onion bag.
