Make My Monday #48

Good Morning all and welcome to another week, don't they fly by.

So today is the start of a new challenge over at make my monday

the theme this fortnight is


So if you fancy joining in and seeing what the rest of the teach have come up with please do pop over. 

I once again dug out my Cornish Seashells and had fun

6x5.5" cardblank.  I used gold glitter card for the sand and then tore strips of the patterned paper for the sea, where you tear its white so gives the effect of waves and movement.  

I used a mix of shells and drift wood collected over the years, a little red starfish from my stash, a metal anchor, pearl beads.  Summer tag cut from the paper pad along with the red crab which i thought tied in with the red starfish well.   I found a metal button in my stash which i thought had the feel of a sailors uniform, which i added to the summer tag.   

Close up, i covered the crab in glossy accents and added touches of glossy accents as water droplets over the whole card front. 

Items used:  Bobunny 'boardwalk collection' papers
Ranger glossy accents
shells, pearl, metal anchor, metal button all from stash
