Something new and BLOG CANDY WINNER

Good Afternoon Maggie Friends,

I am a bit late with my card today as 
Blogger has been a big problem for me this week :o(


It is our lovely MARIA'S
turn this time and here is her
picture for Inspiration:

Look at all the lovely colours!

I wanted to use each and everyone of them LOL.

Lately I have seen many beautiful cards made on 
Craft Card Stock and coloured with pencil crayons,
I wanted to try it out. I had a lot of fun doing it.
You can judge the outcome.

Here is my card:

I have used 'Waterlily' Tilda #299 from the new
Summer Memories Collection, as well
as a few others from 'Surfs Up' Collection 2009.
I used 'Ocean' # 614, Lifebouy #616, and
'Tilda in Water' #367.

My card stock is from SU -
I used 'Crumbcake' and 'Purely
My Design Paper is from 'Echo Park' and
is called 'Summertime'.
The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl and
the colour is called Sky Mauve.
The little silver charm is from my stash.
The shell is from my vast collection 
from all the beaches I have been to. 

Here is Tilda close up:

Here is the inside:

I still really don't understand how you did it. I am kidding you Candy - this is one of the very best cards I have ever seen. You hit the target dead center!!
