Carolina Girl (Cely)
Ahhhhh....I could smell, see and hear the sounds of the coastal waters as I was making this fun card.

Less is best sometimes.  I didn't want to subtract from the beautiful pre-colored scene.  It came together so quickly and easily, but I hope it look like it took me a long time to the person I send it to...haha

It's June 5 and Doodle Pantry is having some lovely and fun new releases.  I chose one of the images from Seahorse Habitat.  Ants in the Pantry Challenge #6 is still in progress.  Come join the fun and for a chance to win a $GC to the store.


A2, acetate sheet, IO starfish die, onion bag, old sentiment stamp, Die-namics stitched square die, Martha Stewart glitter and glitter I order online, glitter pen on pearl and water areas, double sided dimension tape roll

    A beautiful card, I can feel the ocean from my desk chair here! Your coloring is gorgeous and that is the best use of an onion bag that I've ever seen, super clever!

    WOW! your colouring is amazing! *claps*
    What an awesome card.
    Just wanted to apologise for not having my FTHS card live for the start of the hop, and thank you for your kind comment on my previous card.
    My hop card is there now if you would like to see it and be entered into the draw.

  8. I bet it took longer than you're letting on! It's gorgeous.

    We have ants in the pantry for real. :( YUK! They seem to find their way in every spring when it gets too rainy outside.
