Fun on the beach

   The theme for our new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More is warm summer colours. I love the House Mouse designs and so decided to use this one from one of the Cardmaking Collections from Joanna Sheen.
   I began by matting deep red core'dinations cardstock onto white card. I then attached the decorative strip at the base and the main design at an angle. I decoupaged the beach ball and added letters from core'dinations cardstock cut out using Tattered Lace dies. I matted one of the smaller pictures onto blue core'dinations cardstock and attached this to the card using foam pads.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   ABC - O is for open
   Allsorts - inspired by summer
   Papertake Weekly - anything goes

   Crafty Boots - life's a beach
