Fun in the Waves

I have seen a few cards around with these fabulous Children at the Seaside images from Nicecrane Designs and decided to pop over and buy myself some.  Soon after I purchased my images I received an email from Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs offering me two free sets of images, well how could I refuse - you will see some of these at a later date.


A lot of the cards I have seen using these images have been distressed but I decided to stick with my clean and layered look. The papers are a combination of Nitwits and Bearly Mine Designs and I have used Kraft card stock.


The border is my favourite Fiskars edge punch and I have added some ribbon, twine, pearls and a button from my stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge 70 - Polka Dots
Sister Act Card Challenge 67 - Anything Goes
