I do like to be beside the Seaside!

Sorry, I just couldn't resist as this card is for the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping which is 'Seaside or  Beach'  and as we are now a monthly challenge you have plenty of time to join in, but just remember, we are a stamping challenge and do need to see stamping that follows the theme.  We have Flonzcraft as our sponsor and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
I've used a Crafty Individuals set CI 278 and my bathing beauty was coloured with Distress Markers. The sentiments were both stamped and heat embossed with Clear EP.  My little collection of tiny shells were collected on a recent holiday.  Although this is a  5 x 7 card, I think I might turn it into a little wall hanging.
The rest of the team have some great inspiration for you and all the details can be found on the main blog.
I am going to enter this at:
  Country View Challenges - Summertime
  Allsorts - Inspired by Summer
  Fussy and Fancy Fridays - Lazy Summer Days
  Artistic Stamper - Anything Goes
  Eclectic Ellapu - By the Sea

Have a great day,
Avril xx

What a fabulous card Avril. I was a winner at Stamping Sensations in April and this was one of the stamp sets that I chose as part of my prize. You've done a wonderful job with them and provided me with great inspiration as I've yet to use them, thank you x
