Cute Card Thursday blog we are looking for Seaside creations this week. Katharina at Whiff of Joy is our sponsor for this challenge.
On my card Don is having a great day out lazing in his deckchair, but like most lads he can't be parted from his mobile phone! The stamp is Marianne Design DDS3352 with the background from the Summer scenery set DDS3333. I've coloured with my Copic pens and found a piece of MD paper that although from a Christmas pack, it looked suitably summery to me! Here's the card:
I've die cut the MD shells and anchor, and a branch from a Christmas set. I die cut the flowers with the mini poinsettias then painted with shimmery H2Os, then added yellow sparkle mini brads in the centres. The fronds are made with an old MS punch.
The MD dies I used on this card were:
mini poinsettias from LR0142
branch from LR0286
The June challenge at Stamp and Create is 'Summer Fun' so I can enter my card with them. And at Addicted to Stamps they want to see Summer colours so I'm good for them too! Stampavie and More want you to include some brads - in the centre of my flowers, and last but not least, Pixie's Snippets challenge #180, as usual I've used snippets for die cutting my embellishments.
