Little Mermaid

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today?
A busy day here prepping for my Ustream class for Gone Artsy at 8.00 pm 

Today I have a seaside card to share, although it is nearing the end of the summer holidays here in the UK for the children, I can't say that the weather has been brilliant for them.

Just over a week before I fly out to Turkey and hoping the weather is better there!

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card which I have matted and layered lilac pearlescent card.
2. I the matted and layered a white doily.
3. The topper has been matted and layered onto blue card cut out with SB scalloped circle die.
4. I made a double bow and added handmade starfish which has been distressed with vintage photo.
5. To finish off I added blue pearl gems to 2 corners and another small shell to one corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafty Girls Creations #3 - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts #104 - Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner #34 - Lots of Layers

  18. Well, I clicked on here more than 5 minutes ago, and then glanced out the window at the most gorgeous sunset. I got so enthralled, that I just sat and watched until all the colors were gone. Then turned back to the screen and had to scroll up and down to figure out what it was I started to do here. :-D Oh, yes, get caught up on my visits and comments. :-D
