On the beach

   This decoupage is from Joanna Sheen's silly summer set of House Mouse sheets and is matted onto deep yellow core'dinations cardstock which in turn is layered onto cream core'dinations cardstock matted in two pieces onto the front of an easel card. Using a Spellbinders grand labels twenty three I cut out two strips of blue core'dinations cardstock to represent waves.
    The base of the easel was covered with blue mirri card. Onto this I matted deep yellow core'dinations cardstock which had been embossed using the grassy swirls folder from Sheena Douglas. I sanded it before attaching. The stop is a sentiment from the decoupage sheet.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Creative Inspirations - here comes summer
   House Mouse and Friends - relax and enjoy life
   Scribbles Designs - sea, sand and surf
   Imagination Crafts - summer holidays
   Love to Create - anything goes
   Gruffies and Guests - anything goes with the option of boys
   Our  Creative Corner - summertime
   Animal Friends - summer
   The East Wind - beach theme
   Through the Purple Haze - sweet summer
