Magnolia-licious Highlites June Challenge

Hi everyone!

I'm back again with another card, this time for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog.
I'm sooooo late in posting this card. It was due on the 1st. and here it is the 4th already!!! Wow! Time is flying!

Our challenge this month is "Water, Water Everywhere". We've all come up with such diverse cards on this challenge. Hope you'll drop by the Challenge Blog and check it out AND get creative yourself and show us your project! Diana at Magnolia-licious Store has a free image for the one who wins the draw! So dive right in, the water is fine!!!

I chose to make a Swing Card (or a Flip Flop Card). I found the water dp at the bottom of my stack of blue papers and thought it would work out well. Here's what I came up with...

Card folded closed - #666 Sea Background...unfortunately, neither of the images I used are available anymore.

This is the card kind of propped open - a very difficult card to photograph I found!

Here is #315 Dangling Sea Tilda flipped to the front...

Here is a view of the back of the card laid flat. The Sea Background is actually the front of my card...

The sailing vessel charm is from my stash as are the pearls. The sentiments are computer generated. Both images are colored with Copic Markers. The flowers are from WOC and the gingham ribbon is SU long time retired.

Just a short post today as I have a lot on my plate right now. Many thanks for stopping by, your visit is always appreciated...

Blessings and hugs,
