Down by the sea ...

I love to be by the sea, but, unfortunately, haven't been able to see the sea now for quite some time - but I love to make cards that have something to do with the seaside. So it wasn't too difficult to join in this week's DCM challenge 'down by the sea'.

I've used the ATC I made for the August swap on BF - you can read about it here and here.

The colours that tend to come to mind when I think of the seaside are red, white and blue and these were featured for Cupcake challenge 56 this week. They were also the colours of the challenge for day 126 on 365, celebrating 4 July.

I used Inspirational Card Sketch 33, which is this week's challenge on there (I turned the sketch on its side):


  1. A striking card, love the colours and the welcoming deckchairs

  2. A gorgeous card, i love the image and the papers are fab, thanks for joining us at Cupcake this weeek, hugs Pops x x x
