Just Add Ink #53 - An Inspiration Challenge

Good Evening Friends.

A late post from me today but I wanted to enter my card for the Just Add Ink challenge. It`s my first time with this challenge but hopefully not my last.
We were given this gorgeous piccy with instructions to make a card or project using the colours or flower or just something that made us happy.

As soon as I saw this I thought of long, hot summers. And what do we do in the summer? We go to the beach ofcourse. Oh how I long for warm sunshine.....
Anyway, enough of my daydreams, here`s the card I came up with.
It turned to be one of those cards that almost makes itself.
The yellow paper is some that I`ve had for years and with a bit of imagination looks like combed sand.
The blue DP is Papermania Blueberry Pie Collection that I bought a couple of weeks ago and when I first clapped eyes on this sheet I thought of water.
The Image is Inkadinkado Down by the seaside and I`ve been dying to ink them up for weeks.
I found some Starfish beads in a mixed pot that I bought years ago from The Stampman and I think it just adds the finishing touch.
I used a Spellbinders Scalloped border to represent the sea lapping the shore and finished off my image with a lacey circle in bright yellow.
All in all I`m pretty pleased with the result, mainly I think because it tells me that spring isn`t that far away :)

My working week is still annoying me and I`ve had my day off changed, so tomorrow after going to see Dad,
Alan`s taking me to York for the afternoon and while we`re there I`ll just have to pop into the designer outlet and buy some more coloured card. Hopefully this will inspire me to come up with some more creations .

Thanks for popping in....Lynne xxx
