Simple summer card

I tried a technique from the most recent Technique Junkies newsletter, doing an ombre (dark to light) watercolor background, then creating splatters on it. The reinker used for the watercolor is from Ranger, and it is called Stream. I used that as a background for this lovely shell stamp from Impression-Obsession, which is black-embossed onto the background. Summer makes me think of shells and the beach. I was going for a clean and simple look, so I used ribbon tabs as a discrete embellishment.

I am entering the card in these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday, Mid-summer's challenge
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, Emboss it
The Ribbon Girl July Colour challenge, turquoise
Word Art Wednesday #142, Anything Goes
