By the sea

I'n another year older today, and although I won't be by the sea I thought I would share this card with you as I will be in Krakow, Poland, celebrating quietly away from the Olympics and perhaps (unsure as scheduling this post in advance) some grey UK weather?

I've gone completely out of my comfort zone to create this card which is based on an idea I saw on Crafting Clare's site.  She always makes such beautiful cards and inspires me to try new ideas, but often I can't get the same effect.  With this card though I actually managed to get the watercolouring/sponge daubering to work and after fiddling around a bit and adding a frame and a border with some Night of Navy card and attaching it all to a Bashful Blue card base I have a reason to celebrate.

I also thought I'd enter this into the Crafty Boots Challenge (not easy to do when scheduling posts, so I will be back to change the link at some point).

Fingers crossed there are some handmade cards waiting for me to open when I get back on Monday, otherwise I may be struggling for blog posts by then :P.
