ABC, Sketch Saturday and Cupcake Craft Challenges.

What a disappointment. It has just rained here after yesterdays glorious sunshine. Oh well it is supposed to get better this afternoon.

My card today makes me think of our trip to the beach yesterday!!! No we didn't see a mermaid though.
As always I am starting with the sketch from Sketch Saturday a copy is shown below.

I then picked my stamp from Lili of the Valley of Mermaid Coral. I coloured her in with watercolour pencils, and mounted the image on yellow card. I used papers from the Cute Companions "Summer Stories" CD rom. I edged the squares with silver peel off lines to give them more definition.
The card doesn't have any embellishments on it and therefore satisfies the ABC Challenge of Z for zero embellishments. Then I have used a beach theme which covers the Cupcake Craft Challenge.
As Ever I hope you like the card.

Hi Ali,
A lovely beachy card. I ran a mile from this sketch - you've done a brilliant job with it. Well done for fitting so many challenges too.
It rained here too after the lovely sun this morning - oh well!
