Faux Quilted card - honorable mention!!!

Faux Quilted Shell card

Over on May Arts blog I got Honorable Mention for this card that I entered in their beach contest.  Thank you to everyone who left comments that they liked my projects.
A fun way to make your card look like it’s quilted! I call this technique Faux Quilting.
