Best Wishes from the Beachfront

This card was for Grandma who has a thing for sailing and the beach. So for her card I decided to draw inspiration from the "Beachfront" Ribbon Originals pack, adding a bit of Bashful Blue to brighten the colour scheme a bit. For the main image I stamped a flower from the hostess set Oh, So Lovely on Whisper White using Basic Grey ink. I then watercoloured the image using an aquapainter to pick up colour from the lids of the inkpads, and layered it on Basic Grey. The large Whisper White background piece actually has En Francais stamped on it using VersaMark, I know it is hard to see in the photo but in person it looks great. The sentiment is from Take Three, also stamped in Basic Grey, trimmed to size and then one end shaped by sliding it through the back of the Word Window punch, accessories are Sahara Sand ribbon from the Beachfront pack, a Bashful Blue brad, some white cotton thread, and it's all mounted on a River Rock card base.
