At the seaside

I can't believe it's a week since my last post and I've only just got around to making this card for the Totally Gorjuss sketch challenge as well as a few others following a seaside / summer theme.



I've used an image and background paper from my new 'Faye Whittaker collection' CD from Joanna Sheen. There are so many wonderful images on it to remind us of childhood and days when there was sunshine at summertime! The lace, doiley and pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is left over from a decoupage sheet, but can't remember which one.








I shall enter this in the following challenges
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'It's a sketch'
By the Cute & Girly challenge 'A Day At....' (I chose the seaside)
Bearly Mine challenge 'Pearls and Lace'
Willow Sketchie challenge 'Sketch and/or Summer Holidays' (I chose the theme)
Allsorts challenge 'Red, White and Blue'
Lexi's Creations challenge 'For a friend'
