Cute Card Thursday Challenge - At the Beach

I have created todays card with a couple of the new Magnolia Summer Collection Stamps, Ive used Tilda with her surf board and the sea background. I had to mask Tilda to get the sea background behind her, but then Ive coloured them both with my Copic Pens, and cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted her with foam tape onto a piece of Orange Pearlescent Card.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and for the first layer I have used a Yellow Pearlescent card and one of the Nitwit Downloads, these patterns come from the Splash collection, and I thought the designs quite useful for this theme. The second layer is another of the papers but this time I have used one of my EK success border punches, this one is of the called the Beach, the third layer is a piece of the yellow pearlescent card with a strip of a blue patterned paper stuck onto it, and this was then layed on top of the base layer, with the second layer stuck on top.

I have then attached a piece of the ribbon across the centre of the cord webbing strip and attached them around then to the back of the first layer, which was then stuck to the card. The mounted image was then position in the centre of this ribbon. The greeting is also one of the Magnolia Summer stamps and this also was stuck onto a piece of the same coloured card with foam tape and stuck to the right hand bottom side of the card.

To finish of I have stuck some shell and seahorse embellishments to the blue strip of paper, and created a flower with my Hydrangea petals and hung a seahorse charm from the back, before sticking it to the card I punched out some leaves and stuck them first to the card with silicone glue, then my flower on top.
