Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar DT - Holiday Fun!

Woohoo! It is time for another challenge at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and this week our theme is Holiday Fun! Now this can be any kind of holiday so you could make a Christmas card for example but as it's the summer holidays and we've just returned from a lovely beach holiday I went with the summer holiday theme! LOL do you like my props?? I borrowed them from my little boy's basket of shells he bought while we were away :). I am entering my card into the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is clean and simple - hope this fits - it's about as clean and simple as I do LOL!! I'm also entering it into the Everybody Art challenge which is summer!

Here's a closer look! This card was so easy to create! I simply added mats of card for the sky and sea. The waves lapping on the shore were created by simply tearing my blue coredinations cardstock to reveal a gorgeous white torn edge! I LOVE coredinations cardstock for this very reason!

I have coloured the cute hAnglar boy with copics and added some white liquid pearls to the buttons on his bathing suit and some gold liquid pearls to the rivet on his basket.

The starfish is from Whiff of Joy's Life's a Beach kit, coloured with copics and a touch of stickles so that it looks like it has been in the sea!

LOL - this sentiment from Whiff of Joy's Life's a Beach kit always makes me chuckle!! So I guess this is a card to send someone if something bad is going on in their life to cheer them up LOL!

On the inside I have created the beach scene again and this time the tag says Wishing You Sunshine - also from Whiff of Joy's kit.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the stunning creations from the rest of the team! Thanks for looking! x
