Craft Your Days Away GDT - Challenge 25 - SUMMERTIME

Good Morning! Hope you are all ready for the Weekend and hope it's a good one for you! It's time for a new Challenge over at Craft Your Days Away and I am delighted to have been chosen as Guest Designer for this fortnight's Challenge which is ...


A great theme, despite the weather!!! and perfect for this 'Molly at The Beach' Stamp.

The papers are Pink Petticoat 'Fluffy Clouds' in Ocean Blue and some lovely textured golden card for sand effect. The border of blue card was done with wavy scissors and Metallic Silver Sakura Pen on edges to hopefully look like waves. Ribbon and Starfish are from Stash. I made the windmill by downloading a free template, shrinking it and printing pattern on one side and colouring the other side with Promarker Buttercup. It was a bit fiddly being so small but am quite pleased with result. The sentiment was made on computer. And finally a few golden pearls to finish off.

I've also decorated the inside and put a pocket on the left for Gift Voucher or Birthday Money.

 (Promarkers by name, Copics by No.)
Skin: E02, E21
Hair: E55, E57
Dress & Hat: Vanilla, Buttercup
Ribbons: R24, R29, Cornflower, Pastel Blue
Beach Ball: As above
