The Paper Shelter Beach card

Hi everyone, I have a little secret, Flourish with a Bling are about to launch a new range of products....Flowers!! They are so beautiful, I have used one on this card (the largest flower with the pearl centre) but don't tell anyone lol. I will shout it from the rooftops once we are ready to sell them on the website.

I love making beachy cards, they are so much fun. This one I have coloured a gorgeous image from The Paper Shelter. I love love love using their images!

The little bottle I found at a craft show last weekend and thought it perfect for this card so I added a little bit of blue paper to look like a message in a bottle. The lovely white flourish is from Flourish with a Bling and so are the pearls. I have used some white texture paint to shabby the chipboard lighthouse and corner to suit my card.

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!
