Seaside Fun

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight it's Lorraine's turn to host and she has chosen everyone's favourite theme: Anything Goes.

I have missed the last few weeks due to being poorly and then going on holiday for a week so I'm really pleased that I have managed a card this time.

I've used a fabulous decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Silly Summer collection and papers from the House-Mouse Triple CD and Bearly Mine Designs.

I have used Kraft card stock and burlap ribbon, I also attached some shell beads from an old necklace with some twine.  The banner is a Die-namics die and the border is an EK Success punch.   I collected the little shells whilst on our holiday.  You can just about see some of the decoupage layers in this photograph.

This challenge is being sponsored by:

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

Crafty Calendar July Challenge - Summertime Fun
Creative Corner Challenge - Outdoors
Fussy and Fancy Challenge 117 - Summertime
