Just Breathe





Sorry it's been a while since I posted, we are very busy at the caravan site this time of year and when we finish work in the evenings I am normally to tired to blog.
I have made this card for a friend who has lots going on in her life at the moment, I thought the sentiment was just right for her.

I started of with a piece of whisper white card and sponged my little scene using the colours in this weeks CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.
I started with the blushing bride and then the cajun craze to create the beach, I then added some tempting turquoise for the sea adding several layers to make it bold, adding a very light layer of pink for the horizon before adding a light layer of tempting turquoise for the sky.



I am also entering this into the new challenge over at AAA cards Summer fun
