Nautical

A change from Bugaboo, and back to another crafting favourite of mine, Ooh La La and CD crafting as its the start of a new challenge over there today.  Lynn, has chosen

Nautical 

as the current theme and, as I grew up beside the seaside and loved collecting shells when I was little, I chose this shell image for my card.


My card uses my new, super de duper stepper card die from Maddy-Lisa available here. Now by the time this card posts, I'll have probably used this die loads of times, but this is my first make with it.  I think we can all see that the image used was a tad too big to fully appreciate the steps, but I made it whilst we were staying in Aberdeen the other month and I had limited cardmaking bits with me so I had to make do with what I had - still love the card though!

Challenges;
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Summer Breeze - Blue sky's & beaches
Crafty Boots - Beach/Summer vacation
Kitty Bee - Ocean/ Water Animals - Sea shells and other sea creatures
Polkadoodles - More that one fold

I thought it was a design feature that the topper was bigger than the base, one I am going to copy! It looks fab and a great image you chose too.

Gorgeous card Janice - love the image and the fabulous LO.
Wish the weather would improve for more than a day - all we seem to get is one day of sun then back to dull and damp :o(
Hope all is well.
