I made this card for my colleague, Ian - happy birthday, Ian!
I used the shell image from Hero Arts' "Antique Engravings", and a sentiment from "Many Birthday Messages". I clear embossed the images onto white cardstock, and then painted Distress Inks in blues and greens over the top. I used a couple of very old punches from Stampin' Up to punch out the 1 inch squares and the postage stamp layering paper. The sentiment is stamped in Intense Black ink from Hero Arts.
