Cute Card Thursday #73

This week over at Cute Card Thursday they asked for 'At The Beach'.

I used a gorgeous image that I recieved as RAK so I'm afraid I'm not sure who or what it is :( But I do know she's gorgeous!

I coloured her with my WC pencils as I feel this type of image needs a 'washed' look. I backed the image onto a piece of card that I'd made a faux frame out of DST and sawdust!!!

And I also added some real shells from the real beach close to us :)


  1. What an amazing original idea to use the sawdust - it's so effective on this lovely card. Thanks for joining in with us on Cute Card Thursday. Lol Lynn ♥

  2. I think this card is truly beautiful - I love the shells - what a great idea.
    I really do love your style - very unique.
