By The Sea

Look, look! A challenge card to start the week. I had planed to get a lot of challenge cards done over the weekend but of course time just vanished before me eyes. But I did manage to get this one done for the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog which has a fab sketch to follow.

I was dreaming of the seaside when I did this card you know, ice creams, that beach-worn look and lots of Shimmerz sparkly water 🙂 and she just looks so happy and relaxed she must be on holiday!
