Own up, who stole summer? It left us here on Monday afternoon and it's been winter woollies and central heating weather ever since! So glad I didn't put the summer quilt on the bed last week.
I managed a productive evening in the craft room last night and made 3 DT cards plus this one which is for a card swap.
The decoupage and backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's Faye Whittaker Collection CD. I've had this CD for several months now and I think this is the first time I've used it (bows head in shame!). This image reminds me of our first beach holiday in Swanage, Dorset the summer I was 11. The first week we spent all day every day on the beach and this was the first time we'd seen a Punch & Judy show so we watched it umpteen times.
I've used dark blue stardream card for matting the backing paper and image on. Card is finished with a bow (made from recycled ribbon I've had for ages) and a Marianne Design button die tied with baker's twine.
I've decorated inside to match.
