She sells seashells..

Me again!

Can you tell I am catching up on blogging!!!! Now the title heck I had to think about it as I was typing it as the old rhyme sometimes get you good!!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Magnolia-Licious Challenge blog- Anything goes
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia- Summer
Simply Magnolia - CAS or fully loaded
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- dots and/or stripes

Now I used an older stamp for this card, but she is such a gorgeous one and is doing one of my fave things to do in summer at the beach...collect shells. I have a vase full of different ones which I love.

I used Kaisercraft papers for this card and coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. The card shape is by Go Kreate and the dies are a mix of Tim Holtz and Magnolia.

The fabulous gorgeous lace at the bottom is from Live and Love Crafts and I have just ordered more of it it is gorgeous!!!! Behind the image you can see some cheese cloth which reminded me of fishing nets. The shells are from a local haberdashery shop and the gold shell is a 'Dress it up' button. I love the sparkle of it.

In the glass bottle I used chunky white glitter.

On all the die cuts I sprayed them with Glimmer mist to give it that late afternoon gorgeous golden shimmer that the beach gets. So relaxing. The sand that Tilda is standing on I added gold and glass fran-tage from Stampendous.

To finish off I added a small wooden peg and a star fish charm.

Hope you all have a gorgeous weekend.
