Turquoise is TOO tempting!!!!

After creating the "Wild" card, I couldn't seem to get enough of this colour I was stuck in a "rust"! Both cards use Bodacious Bouquet for the background pattern. The main images are from Stamping Bella . Aren't they both just "Beachy"?????

Now hopefully THAT narration wasn't enough to scare you all away for good!!!!!!

The weird border on the surfer fella card was made with a corner punch.................when done neatly, it creates a beautiful scalloped edge, that I was going for, but as I messed up one part, I thought hmmm, this looks kinda funky, so I just repeated the pattern (yep, it was one of THOSE days!!!!)

I thought I had a great brainwave when I was thinking about designing the Cruiseabella card, originally intended to be a Cammie Tri-fold Slit Punch Card , I ran out of room to make a window, but alas!! Stay tuned, I am going to try to give it another go this week!!!!! I do have a neat idea, I think I will just have to change the dimensions accurately capture the idea!!!

Both images were coloured with aquapainters and markers and embellished with Prima Flowers!
