Don and Daisy blog for the new challenge - holiday greetings. I've put together a card with Daisy In the Sunshine stamp and the sailing boat from the Summer scenery set. I've coloured with my Copic pens and added Lace Stickles along the edge of the sea as it meets the sand, and on the waves. I've got a couple more close ups for you .. .. ..
Finally, the card .. .. ..
Again, taken on a bright sunny day so the colours are looking washed out, it is brighter in real life. There's another shell decoration at the top along with a stamped PB postcard onto the MD handmade paper, and a tiny scrap of tinsel I found in my stash. I had fun making this card and beachcombing for the little extra bits, there are so many shells on the beaches here washed in after all the storms.
Here's the long list of Marianne Design products I've used for my card:

I'd like to enter my card into the Fussy and Fancy Friday outdoor challenge. Today I'm off out with hubby, need to get a few bits and pieces and walk the dogs somewhere although it's looking a bit cloudy and the roads in Cornwall are usually hectic on a Saturday .. .. but hopefully everyone will be leaving the county now that the Whitsun/half-term break is over .. .. leaving the locals a little peace and quiet before the summer madness begins!
