I have been resting honestly ...............

I have been resting, at my craft table, it is in the kitchen in the sunlight pouring through the door, and out of the way of the 3 boys lol,
I saw this type of card made by Nancy Watts on telly yesterday, so just had to have a go,

and you know me, had to include at least one challenge with it,
its a few more than one, so will list at the end,
I used a cream card base, golden mirror board, brown backing paper from Get Funky cd,
a few peels offs, ribbons in gold, brown, and pink,
Digi Image from whoopsi daisy.

The sketch which I love is from Sweetest Thing,
I distressed the edges of my image in brown, and then added some nice blue chalk to make it look like the delightful little girl is paddling in the sea,

This falls into the following challenges -
Whoopsi Daisy - Ribbons n Bows
Fun with Shapes - favourite colours
Quirky crafts - Girly Girly
Sew Many - 3 Embellies,
Get Funky - Pink, Brown and Cream
Prairie Fairy - Photo Inspiration
Creative Inspirations - Beach Theme

Thank You for stopping by
I really enjoy reading your comments,

Hi Angie

A great make - I haven't seen one of these style cards before. It must have taken ages to make.

Thank you for sharing with Get Funky! this month.

Love Jules xx
