Be Happy Be Bright Be You (Cute as a Button image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's my card that made the front cover of Australian Papercraft Essentials. I was so excited as I didn't know that was going to happen until I saw the magazine.

There's a picture of the cover below.

My "job" was to use Cute as a Button images and the lovely Francesca from CAAB let me choose some lovely digis from her shop. I also took the opportunity to advertise my company, Flourish with a Bling by using some of our leaves and pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

AllSorts - frame it!
Creative Inspirations - Seaside, sunshine and summer holidays 
Cupcake Inspirations - tropical (collecting shells) 
Glitter & Sparkle - anything goes
Pile it on - use your favourite colours - pink and teal
Ribbon Girl - July any image
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - by the sea/nautical (collecting shells) 
Through the purple haze - Peaceful/harmony (being yourself/collecting shells on the beach)
Word Art Wednesday - anything goes  

Have a great day,

XOX Lucy
