Beach Honey


A few weeks ago I was asked by ABC Challenge Blog to guest design for them for the month of August, and of course said yes!! I love playing along with their challenges, they are always such fun. 
Today's challenge is A is for August.  Well summer is almost over but we will be going to the beach in a few weeks so that was my inspiration for this challenge.  

I'm a huge CC Designs fan and this Beach Honey stamp is soooo sweet!!  I tried some faux stitching again and inked around the image while it was still in the Nestibilities.  Something I had never tried before, but it really gave this card exactly what it needed.  I then added Glossy Accents to her sunglasses and used a real sand-dollar and starfish which I attached to the ribbon with glue dots.

A lovely card and ideal for the challenge theme. I like the paper piercing you have done around the image, so understated but very effective.

I've just discovered CC Designs & am eager to start using them. I love the whole concept here - the way the backing paper sets the scene & the real embellishments are delightful. I'm just discovering the power of allowing elements to hang over the edge - this shows it brilliantly.
