Time Flies....

Hi everyone,
I can't believe it will be April tomorrow, this year seems to be flying by....I noticed a big influx of tourists this weekend,which is great ! The weather is glorious and I so hope it keeps thats way,as its nice to see families on the beach and people happy  and smiling !
The card I am sharing  is a 6x6 white card blank.I have sponged the front of the card using Distress ink-Milled Lavander .The papers are from my stash and are leftovers from bigger sheets.The little sentiment was a freebie from a mag and the ribbon,flowers,button,gem and pearls are also from my stash.
I would like to enter this card into the followering challenges...
Wishing you all a lovely evening , Hugs Susan x

      Lobster Trap...

      Evening everyone,
      Its been a beautiful sunny and warm day here. The strong winds of the last few days seem to have died down,and its been nice to get back in the garden and continue with a good tidy up. Hope everyone has had a nice weekend..
      The card I am sharing today is an 8x8 easel shaped card.The pretty image is from Prarie Fairy Designs and is called ' Lobster Trap '. I  have coloured it using watercolour pencils and chalks for the background. I have distressed the edges of the card and the yellow design paper with a brown ink pad and a sponge.The image is mounted onto gold mirri card .I have used a selection of different coloured , brown card stock, which is also mounted onto gold mirri card. The card candi has been tinted over with a brown promarker, to give them a 'rusty' feel.l used a scalloped nesti and natural twine and the shells are some that l have collected from my wonderful holidays in the US. These particular ones are from St Pete's in Florida, happy days !
