International Projects Top Ten Winners Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I was very fortunate to be one of the top ten winners in July's blog hop and we get to hop again.
The theme is the same -  'Travel'



My card represents where I would like to be if I was able to take a holiday now. 
White sand, blue water and sky. I have used grey granite for my card base with a layer of shimmery white which has been colour washed with coastal cabana. When it was dry I dragged the sharp edge of my paper snips across the edges to 'rough' them up a little. Net and starfish are from the under the sea framelits,  Sentiment is from the sea of textures stamp set, on a shape from the stitched label framelits, secured with ribbon from the tea room suite. 

Thanks for stopping by today
Have a great day 💖
