At the beach

Hello lovely people,

I had a lovely relaxing and mostly sunny weekend but oh dear., it seems like such a long time to wait for the next weekend :-(  So, to take your mind off that, here's the new challenge at All Dressed Up and this time we have this fabulous sketch for you to work with...

I am a huge fan of sketches as they are a great starting point for a design, although I usually can't resist putting my own little twist on it!
In this case the circular layer has become a square and my set of 3 embellishments has become some bunting... yes, bunting again, but it's so cute!

Given the gorgeous sunny weather we have been having I just had to use one of the 3 little summer girls and some papers that make me think of the seaside.

Card recipe;

Gorgeous interpretation of the sketch Kat... and of course, your colouring is coming on in leaps and bounds!! I've just got through the Lightsource bit of the course - but never seem to get a lot of time to concentrate on it - PLUS I hate reading instructions!! hehe!
