Smiling at the seashore

Good morning everyone!  I feel like I have been missing in action, but trying to get some challenges done.  I am working on some DTGD challenges and hope to post all of those this week, but for today, I have a card that covers two challenges, the City Crafter Challenge Blog #14(a sketch) and the Moxie Fab World (a graphics card, a real challenge for me because I don't think I do graphics, very seldom)
I started with this PTI paper from the Green Boutique and used some Inkadinkado seashore stamps that have graphics in them!  I really wanted to use these cool seashell toothpicks that I found at Anthropology a couple of weeks ago on sale (love the sale section) and I wrapped them with a narrow Japanese masking tape that I had.  The sketch from CityCrafters was perfect for these small stamps that I stamped in Memento Tux. black and coloured with my Copic markers.  I cut them out and layered them over a plain white square of cs and sandwiched the toothpicks in the center.  The sentiment is an old "Special Hostess/demonstrator" set from SU that I got when I was a demo several years ago.
That is it for my foray into the graphic design world...I know, don't quit my day job!
Have a great Sunday!
