At the Beach...

Hi there Folks...

How are you all, hope you have had a fab weekend? We had a good one, it was our anniversay on Saturday, 28 years married, gosh the years are rolling in! Our youngest had come down to visit for a few days, so with the weather being not too bad, we managed to get the grass cut and a bit of weeding done to, as it had been raining most of the week! Today I'm here to share with you my inspiration for our new challenge that has started over at Unicorn Challenge. Our theme this month is 'At the Beach'.

Taking a cream hammered A4 card, I halved then shaped the corners, then matt and layered blue shimmer paper and blue water effect paper along with lace ribbon border. For the topper I used the same foil paper with cream hammered card, both die cut and added these cute flip-flop embellishments! To decorate I added die cut seahorse and shells using whitewash card, seaweed - glitter paper, fern and stamens - cream hammered card. Finishing off with pearl gems and 'Hello' sentiment die cut also cream hammered card...
