By the Sea or the


Sweet Peas as you can see. bawhahah... Noone said I was a poet. :0)
Today is the pre-release challenge over on Flourishes newsletter for your chance to WIN ALL THREE of the new releases. And trust me these are ones you will WANT to have. So check it out and all the deets on the newsletter.
The theme is By the Sea. So anything from the sounds, colors, sunsets, summer nights, waves crashing on the shore. Just coming from the beach 2 weeks ago I had it all fresh in my head. I choose to go with the colors of the sea. I made two different cards and yes, I did practice more of my Copic coloring. I am starting to feel a little more comfortable with these now. Thank goodness. hee hee The color collections I used are:

WOW! These are both so beautiful! I love the sweet peas in blue! AND, I have that flower trim that you have on the bottom of that first card. Super cute that way with the pearls in the center. AND, I love that second card how you stamped the bottom flourish with the center pearl! Gorgeous job!! Hugs,

Stacy, when I saw these on Yahoo it was love at first sight! The way you use those clean white layers is so very appealing, and the texture you add with your scoring steps it way up there. I just love the blues, and the gingham ribbon, and the pretty little trim with the pearls. Absolutely enchanting! Pretty darn good looking coloring, too!
