Summertime and the living is easy....

Good afternoon blogland!

Hope you are well?

I am here today with a card that ive been dying to try for, well forever! Its a different shape card for me, but i do love it.

The challenge I am entering my card in are the following-

Time for a Magnolia challenge - Still Summer!
Simply Magnolia - Holiday/travel
Deep Ocean Challenge blog - Something sweet (cant get sweeter than ice cream!)
Tilda's Town Neighbourhood challenge blog - Add a creative fold or tag
That Craft Place Challenge Blog - Summer colours

So for this card I used the gorgeous DP's from LOTV in 'Beach Bliss' I finally gave and used them, kinda been hoarding them lol. The die is from Go Kreate dies back in England. Awesome place! I coloured the ice cream image from Magnolia with Copics and used some blue glitter pen on the bobbles on the top of the shack. For me Ice = summer, as does the beach. So to get this effect I used the awesome dies that I won of the seaweed, jellyfish, and shell. I added some cheesecloth behind the main image, to the top of the front but also inside. I like this for beachy/holiday themes as reminds me of fishing nets. The flowers are from WOC. I added 3 white shells and a gold glitter button and a gold glitter starfish. The heart is a wood like material which reminded of the drift wood on a beach. The Banner inside is from La La Land crafts. The sentiment is from LOTV.

To finish off I added some blue rhinestones and a flip flop charm as again summer = flip flops!

I hope you like my card
