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:
