By The Seaside

Good morning to you all, I am scheduling this post as we stayed overnight at my daughter and her partner's house in Bolton following the party.  I may have a teensy headache today lol!

I was thrilled to be asked to be Guest DT for August for Sweet Stampin' Challenge so this is my first card for August.  Actually I have just realised now that this should have gone out yesterday as that is when the challenge started so I am a day late - sorry!


Now I am ashamed to say that I bought this Tilda last year when the summer collection was released and this is the first time I have used it!  Pearl Tilda has been coloured with Copics and I added Liquid Pearls to the bubbles.  The papers are Kaisercraft Rock Pool and are foiled they look really pretty IRL.  I have cut Tilda out with SB large Ovals and mounted her onto Floral Ovals which was cut from some beautiful foil.  The ribbon and irredescent pearl trim are both from The Ribbon Girl and the shell is from the beach.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

(to be filled in later, hopefully)

Please pop over to Sweet Stampin' to see the DT beautiful creations for more inspiration and full details of the challenge - promise I won't be late next week!!

Thank you so much for looking, take care xx
