Sea Breezes

 Hello folks!  I hope you have had a fabulous weekend.  I had fun making this spring card,  keeping the colour palette to soft blues, greens and sand.  The papers are by We R Memory Keepers.  The edges are inked - I find it so difficult to make a card without inking the edges... it just seems unfinished to me.  Hmmm maybe I should try harder not too.  The image is from a Faye Whittaker stamp set.  I watercoloured the image and cut it out with my Nestabilities.
I used a 'Hot Off The Press' template to create the 'fold-it' ribbon swirls.  I thought they looked a little like the paper windmills we like to associate with fun days at the beach.
Ciao for now!
