Beachy Best Wishes card (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I've been out of action a little this month but I'm back now and I'm loving every second creating again. I bought myself a new craft desk and I feel much more organised.

The three cards I'm posting today are very different from each other, I hope you like them all, this is very muted, girly and a little mature/shabby, the other is very cute and bright using distress oxide inks and then I have another girly card but it's bright and cheery.

This gorgeous image is from Hannah Lynn at Crafts and Me, I have created with her once before so I've added the card below. I used some stamps and dies from a free magazine set, that would be the shells, starfish and seahorse. I coloured the girl with Copics. The papers are from Kaisercraft.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Aloha Fridays -  anything goes with optional twist: summer
As you like it - fave embellishment and why - lace because it adds some dimension to a card as well as always turning a card into a more feminine delicate creation which I love.
