Hello Sunshine beach card

Hi there,

I am loving creating beachy cards at the moment as it's the middle of winter here in Australia so it somehow makes it feel warmer lol. I am off to England in a couple of weeks so I can't wait to see some sunshine, hope it's still there by the time I arrive!

This is my last card created for my July guest designer spot at Sister Act Challenges and as always they are Anything goes. I have made this card with a Tiddly Inks image and sentiment, I used PNG images so I could put the sentiment, girl and beach chair close together. The beach chair is from Delicious Doodles but I thought they all go really well together so I was pleased with my little "scene" hehe. The papers are from Simple Stories and the pearls are from Flourish with a Bling.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
