Dt card for the Alphabet Challenge: E for Easel Cards

Hi all, it's Friday again, and this week over at the Alphabet Challenge it's E for Easel Cards.
When I first saw an Easel Card I was totally in awe (and very intimidated) , and even bought one from ebay ( so I could pull it apart)  it was like a a new wonder for me. You don't want see my first one, but now that I know how to make them, man they are soooo easy. Here is my recipe: just make a normal card whatever size you wish, and just fold the front part in half again. There is your base. Then you just continue from there. There are so many variations out there now,  if you are not sure just go an check out You Tube.
I glued the actual real shells on with Glossy accents. The image was a free digi from a while ago, sorry can't remember from who. I do remember that it was inspired by a photograph.
I added the sun.Something different.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
