Beach Huts

I've made this card for the current CD Sunday Challenge, the theme is Seasons.  I have used my Crafter's Companion Halcyon Days CD to make a Summer themed card - I think that's a bit of wishful thinking on my part.


I decided to use one of the card companions along with a topper and an additional baking paper from the design sets.  I used some foam pads between a couple of the layers to add a little dimension.


The tag was part of the card companion, I just added some ribbon and a button.


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

CD Sunday Challenge - Seasons
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge 122 - Anything Goes
WordArt Wednesdays Challenge 219 - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs Challenge - February Anything Goes

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.

Super cute card, Pauline. I think it is wishful thinking on my part too. It has been very nice weather for the past week, but we are expecting two snow storms for this next week so a beachy theme is very nice for me to see.

It's so sweet and summery and I really like this rustic style, kind of reminds me of a patchwork project of fabrics.
