Let's Shell-abrate

I created this birthday card using this adorable image and sentiment from Whimsie Doodles.  The image is called Pearl and the sentiment is Shellabrate. They are both part of the Shell-abration digi set.  The card base is marine blue. I cut around a piece of white cardstock using scalloped scissors so that it was just a little smaller than the base. I added a turquoise dotted ribbon down the left and right sides.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I backed both the image and the sentiment in marine blue and added one to each ribbon.  I finished by adding 3 blue flatback pearls to the upper left corner and a bow made out of the same ribbon just under the image.
