Beach Scene

This is my desk at the end of making this card which took forever. See the red and white print. This is wrapping paper I used on a friends present and I loved the pattern. I thought it would be good on a card with one of these old sports photos. Well......

This is the card and as you can see no red and white. It just would not work not matter what background etc I used. For this card I used SU River Rock as the base card and inked around the edges. I cut an image from my sports illustration book and dabbed some ink colours onto the picture. The top paper is a scrap I collect ages ago and knew would come in handy one day. I used the SU Pricelss set for the flourish, flowers and So Kind, finished with lace and pearl bling.


  1. your cards are beautiful, insightful and more than anything very specific. The fact that they are hand made does not deter you in any way and I think it's great that anyone could pay such attention to detail to create something so beautiful. Good luck for thew future and continue the good work; it is appreciated.

  2. What a lovely comment...thanks so much.

  3. I love your cards. I am trying to get back into cards. I find I need to collect a lot more items before I start. It will be a good break from my stitching.Sharon
