Apologies for my absence

Hi there
Firstly i must apologise for my absence over the last week. We have been on holiday to St Ives in Cornwall, which is one of my favourite places.
We spent some lovely days on the beach.
Some of our photo's left me inspired to make my next card

The background to the card is made up of 'confetti white' card with strips of bashful blue, taken with teal(retired), baja breeze ribbon and so saffron. The taken with teal strip is embossed with the square lattice embossing folder.
For the main image i used glossy white cardstock and sponge daubers to apply the bashful blue, baja breeze and so saffron ink.
The 'sail away' stamp was inked up with stazOn jet black ink as this works best on glossy surfaces.
The 'happy birthday' sentiment is from the level 2 hostess set 'something to celebrate'.

Happy memories. Hope you like it.

Now back to the washing!


  1. Oh Tina, you are the third friend who frequents St Ives and each time i think i must go. One day :)

  2. Love this card and can see how you were inspired! Fabulous!
