Beside the sea



Morning Peeps, another scheduled post as today I should be in Florence, so hopefully Mr Blogger is playing fair and I can tell you all about this weeks challenge at Allsorts where my teamie Fluer is thinking about Summer days by the beach with the theme 'Oh I do love to be beside the seaside'.

So it's an easel card for me and a stamp from Joanna Sheen. I have kept the colours all very soft. the DP's are from stash, the flowers made with TH distress floral die and the little labels use stamps from the same stamp set as the main image. I added some glossy accents and glitter for waves in the background and few little sea shells which I collected on the beach in Majorca a couple of years ago............was amazed I got the bag full through Customer, I was sure they would relieve me of them.

Have a great weekend everyone.
