Island Dream

Hiya Peeps,

Hope your not getting fed up of me this week, lol.  I had an hour with a personal trainer last night and when I came out of the gymn I could hardly put one leg in front of the other to just pop into Sainsburys and well this morning I'm coming down the stairs like a 95 yr old woman, one step at a time.  OH says, "no pain, no gain".... ummmmmm,.

Anway, onto today's card which is hopefully fits the theme for our challenge at Make It Colourful of "PURPLE".  I have used the Kenny K's Bathing Beauty available from Bunny Zoe and paired her with the fab background from Make It Crafy "THE BEACH".

I have coloured the image using a combo of both copics and prisma pencils.

THE BEACH Background stamp from Make It Crafty
Kenny K Bathing Beauty from Bunny Zoe
Papers are My Minds Eye "Vanity Fair" from Bunny Zoe
Tickets from Tim Holtz
Half flat backed pearls from Bunny Zoe
Metal palm tree embellishment is making memories but I've had it an age
Martha Stewart Frond Punch
Flowers from stash

Enjoy the weekend.
