Just Magnolia meets Colour Create
























Good morning everyone!

I hope the sun is shining for you today - apparently we're in for a hot one today! Here is my card for both Just Magnolia where the theme is friendship and Colour Create where this week's colours are Blue, Black, Sand and Silver. One tiny confession to make - I forgot the silver....... doh! And it's too late to add any now because I've sent it to a friend already. I did use all the other colours and managed to incorporate the seaside option too so I hope I'm forgiven!

I've used a mixture of papers on my card - October Afternoon and Kay&Co along with some Coredinations card which I embossed and sanded. This Tilda from the new Summer Kit has been coloured with Copics and I added some pearly paints to the water for a bit of shimmer, although this doesn't really show up on the photo. I used a Melissa Frances transfer for my sentiment and some Bazzill Just the Edge strips around the image....... the rest is from my stash.

Well enjoy your day folks - not sure what we're up to yet so I think I'll start a card while I decide!
