MAWTT - I do like to be beside the seaside

Our hostess this week is Claire and she chose 'I do like to be beside the seaside' as the theme for this week's challenge over at Moving Along with the Times.

I used the image from Joanna' Sheen's 'Faye Whittaker collection' cd as I knew there were lots of lovely images of the seaside on it. This reminds me of when I was small standing at the edge of the sea and getting lost in dreams. It could have been me except I would have had very dark curly hair and probably a pink dress!

I used a Craft UK scalloped card blank. The pale blue card is from Papermill and the backing paper is also from the cd. I used my Spellbinder dies as you can see - I'd be lost without them. After cutting the image from the sheet I used my Carl corner rounder on the corners. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and is heat embossed with Sparkle and Sprinkle's Blueberry embossing powder. Some tiny shells from Beachcomber are the only embellishments.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenge - Summer
Crafty Catz Challenge - Use 2 different dies
QKR Stampede Challenge - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Catch the Bug Challenge - Summertime
The Doodle Garden Challenge - Summer Lovin'
