Beside the Seaside

Hello to everyone who pops by and a warm welcome to any new followers.

It seems a while since I have found time to join in at Addicted to stamps and more but the great photo inspiration they have for the challenge this time was just too wonderful to resist. Do pop over and have a look and also see what the design team have made--very inspiring.

 It is rectangular-honest it is. I must have taken the picture at an angle.

I used one of my own photographs taken on our seafront here where we live. The thistle heads were brown but I did love the red of the wine so coloured them red. The rest of the card is as you see it--the Tim Holtz clock embossing folder, a flower cut from a Marianne die and a real sea shell from the beach.

Have a great day everyone and nice of you to visit my blog

Love Chrissie xx
