I will post the winners on my Facebook page Stamp This, stop by and see if it's you!!
Here is my card;

I love the Seashells set and decided to stamp them on colored paper with matching inks and shade them just a bit with colored pencils. They were then cut out using the matching dies. Frayed burlap was wrapped around a white panel and a strip of Voyage Beneath the Sea paper was glued to the center with 3 in 1 Glue as were the seashells. The sentiment is from the Ocean Wisdom Perfectly Clear Stamp Set and stamp in black.  White self adhesive pearls were then colored with a Spectrum Noir pen and randomly placed them.

the burlap looks great in the nautical theme.
Stamping on the colored paper and then stamping with
a deeper ink was a fast, fun idea.
the shells looks wonderful.
