Card for Challenges

Good Evening everyone,

I have decided to enter this card into Creations by GillM Challenge.  The challenge this time is a sketch challenge check out her blog as it is really lovely and also Divas by Design which is pastels.

I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.  Looking forward to my holidays in September when I will be flying off to Altinkum (which means Golden Sands) in Turkey.

I have yet again used my favourite style of card 8 x 8 inch square on pearlescent card.  From my crafty stash I have used a pale blue mirri card, cream coloured textured card, some card stock that looks like the sky and a sheet of sea horses from my K & Co 12 x 12 assorted papers.  I have used my Spellbinder dies (can't remember the names of these dies) and cut 2 different sizes so that they mat and layer just large enough for my decoupage which is one of the Moorhead designs.  I have distressed inked the layers with stormy sky and antique linen.  The shells are from a sheet of shells I found in my filing cabinet where I keep everything labelled into catergories.  The little book label is from another Spellbinder Die which I have handwritten "Sun, Sea and Sand" using a Sakura glitter pen in blue.

Thank you for stopping by

Hugs Linda xxx
