I do like to be beside the Seaside!


Well as the title of this post suggests I do like to be beside the seaside, but not in Britain at the moment with this continuous rain and cold! So dreaming of warmer days and flicking through the current issue of Crafts Beautiful magazine where there was a similar project I was inspired to make this card.

The card in the magazine used fabric, but I decided to try a similar card with paper. I used a variety of background papers which was great for using up all those scrap! I have never tried doodling or using my own handwriting on a card, but I am quite pleased with the results.

I am entering this card into the following challenges :
Crafters Companion - Summer
Crazy Challenge - Summer / Beach
LEJ Designs - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

This does actually look like fabric.
A wonderful nostalgic, homespun feel to your card.
