Ocean scented card

I'm back to share my card for this weeks challenge at Papercraft Star
"Here Comes Summer"

For this weeks challenge I used a lovely image from our sponsor

I just love these pretty ladies ... 

These two victorian ladies are on the beach and I carried the theme through with my embellishments

And this card smells good ... like the sea air ... I'll let you into a secret ... I'm kind of a magpie when it comes to sale stuff and bits and pieces ... A long while ago I bought a bag of potpourri ... called Ocean breeze which was only about 50p in the sale ... I just knew that the bits and pieces would get used and here they are along with a little shell and a pretty charm

I know that the rope looks 'real' too but actually this is just one piece of background paper with the frame on ... It came from another of my finds from long ago ... a book of scrapbook papers by Paper Boutique ... a little touch of frayed muslin, ribbon and 'button' (fabric earring with the back removed ... I know ... there is no end to what I can use ha! ha!)
So there we are a summer 'scented' card...

I hope you'll hop over to Papercraft Star and check out the projects from the talented ladies I'm fortunate enough to be designing with ... Maybe you will be inspired to join us this week and celebrate the Summer of 2012 ...

Thanks for stopping by
