Miri is setting the challenge for us this week at Daring Cardmakers - she’d like us to take advantage of the summer weather and get outdoors. Picnics, sunbathing, tennis, waterskiing, a stroll along the prom with an ice cream... what would you choose to do?

I’ve opted for a spot of beach combing with some stamped shells and die cut netting. A piece from my scraps pile provides a splashy blue background and a smattering of sequins finishes it off.

Antique Engravings and Say It All by Hero Arts (I suspect both sets are retired)
Seaside by Crafty Secrets (no longer with us)

Joanne, this is gorgeous! Living here in South Florida, I think you've created a perfect beach-themed card. I especially love the "fishnet" over the blue that reminds me of our blue water. And your shells are exquisite! What a stunning card, sweet friend! I totally love it and think you really rose to the challenge!! Hugs! xoxo

Love this gorgeous card Joanne, love those stamps and the netting they certainly put you in mind of beach combing.

This is fab, Joanne. Love the shells on the netting - I didn't realise it was die cut, I thought you've saved it in your "might come in useful one day' box.....I can't be the only one who has one of those!

The netting die cut is great.

Wonderful card that makes me want to go stick my feet into the water and seek some shells while I'm there. Love the netting die - I just got one for myself but have not yet used it.
