Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 35

Life’s A Beach!

That is the fabulous Summer Quixotic Paperie Challenge from Elaine this week, it is all about making a project with a beach or an underwater theme.

As you can see I went for the underwater theme with one of the gorgeous CC Design Mermaids – Calmsea – available over at Quixotic Paperie.

I’ve matched her with the beautiful teal and buff papers from the yummy Crate Paper Brook Collection also available from Quixotic Paperie as are the lovely iridescent pearls I’ve used to embellish the card.

Enjoy this Summer challenge,

can’t wait to see what you do.
