Happy Birthday

I had to be at home and waiting for a tradesman to call today so I took the opportunity to do some crafting.  It was a bit of a shame to waste the lovely weather with rain forecast for the next week or so though.  

 I would like to enter:

The Paper Shelter - Water Wise

The Outlawz Thursday Challenge - Curved Border

Let's Squash it - 2 out of 3 ain't bad

I have used an embossing folder from Couture Creations called Drink Me.  I think that is now a retired folder as I couldn't find any embossing folders on their website.  It certainly is one that I have had for quite some time.  I cut the Kaisercraft paper into a rolling curve to represent the sea.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and the sentiment is by From The Heart Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added three glitter gems into some of the bubbles.


  1. Super design - such great use of your papers. I love the embossed background, and your glitter dots. Thanks for sharing this with us at The Paper Shelter, and for using one of our images!

  2. What a lovely card Suze - a great image, and I love your textural background with the torn paper and the (dry) embossing.

  3. Love your design of the card! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Shelter Challenge! I hope to see you in our next challenge!

  4. I had that folder years ago! It’s a beauty, I’m not sure why I let mine go — love it as a bubble background for your beach girl!

  5. So beautiful card. Thank you for sharing at The Outlaws "Twisted Thursday" Challenge.
