A Pinch, A Punch...

...it`s the first of the month.
Which means it`s time for a brand new challenge at St Lukes Charity Card Challenge and this month the theme is, By The Seaside.
We want you to send us your cards showing anything to do with seaside holidays.
The beach, seashells, yatchts, fishes anything with a " get away from it all" summer by the sea feeling.
When you`ve done that, you could send your card, by post, to the hospice to sell to raise funds too. What could be better? The address in in the sidebar on the St Lukes Blog. There is also a fabulous prize this month for the best entry chosen by the DT..
Here is a little bit of inspiration,

I`ve made a panel for the front of my card and embossed using a swirls EF because it reminds me of rolling waves.
I`ve added a snippet of blue paper to represent the sea and a piece of yellow for the sand.
The image is by Inkadinkdo Down by the Sea set stamped in versafine black.
I haven`t added any colour to the image because I think it lovely just as it is.
What I wouldn`t give to by the sea right now...

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Such a pretty card. Love all the details and layers.

  2. I really love the contrast of the black and white image with the colour representing the sea and sand behind - inspired idea :-D
    I wish I was by the sea tonight - there may be a breeze there as its flipping boiling but stuffy in Sheffield tonight!!

  3. This is really lovely - a clean and simple image with the texture and papers being the sea and sand! It's been a lovely evening here in Wales - not sure about today though!!! It does appear that lighthouses are quite the theme :)

  4. Hi Lynne

    A fabulous creation and yes you are right .. .. any more colour I think would spoil it!!

    p.s. Yes, I think a "beat" of hearts would be perfect!!! LOL!!!

  5. Love your gorgeous card Lynne.

  6. Hello Lynn
