Dreams of the Beach

Hello!

 

Here is a simple layered card for the Geko Galz July Facebook Challenge.
The theme is Dreams of the Beach.

 

The image is from the Geko Galz 'By the Shore' collage sheet and the papers are from the  La Isla Bonita paper pack. I used the Tropical Flowers and Sunset Beach papers printed to A6 size. 
The gorgeous image had its edge inked with Memento Danube Blue and was then mounted on back card to make the colours pop. A pierced rectangle die was used to cut the frame from Tropical Flowers which again was matted on black card. This made up the card topper. 
The background is Sunset Beach matted onto black card.  The card topper was attached on foam pads.
I liked how the card looked at this stage, but decided to add some embellishments.
Flowers were attached to the top corners of the image and a wooden word embellishment was inked and heat embossed with holographic glitter powder.
I think I preferred the simple, un-embellished version. What about you? 



Thanks for stopping by!
