A day by the Sea

Good Morning All,

I have been having a little play this morning while Charlie has been sleeping so I will quickly share with you before he wakes up:

The theme over at Crafty Cardmakers is to create a postcard with a beach scene. I knew I had a digikit in Craft Artist that had lots of beach bits in it so I loaded it up and had a play and I created these two postcards. The bottom one is already set out as a postcard so I just added the little image. The top one was bits from the digi kit and some text to build the scene.

After I had printed out my postcards I thought I would use them to make a card. So here is what I have done with them:

The little girl is a Morehead image and I have taken her into Craft Artist and added a frame around her from the beach digikit. The backing papers and little tickets sre K&co and I have used some gold textured card from my stash. I have embellished with a natural ribbon border and some shells that my friend gave me a while back.

I am entering this creation into the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers - Seaside Postcard
LEJ Designs - Vintage
The Cutie Pie Challenge - Borders and Frames
