~* Guest Designer at the City Crafter Challenge Blog for Week #56 ~ By The Sea *~



Aloha Everyone!

I was pleasantly surprised and honored when Kirsty from the City Crafter Challenge Blog asked me to be a Guest Designer this week. Thank you for the great honor, Kirsty! Love your challenge blog and love all your designers. You are all so talented and sweet!

The theme of this week's challenge at CCCB Week #56 was "By The Sea." I had a blast "playing" with this fabulous image from Shannon's Sentiments. Thanks Shannon! The wonderful image is called Chaise and Umbrella.

I started off with a kraft cardstock card base, added some light colored burlap fabric, then some burlap twine, and then the beautiful image, which I distressed. I colored in the image as well as distressed the image with Distress inks. The edges of the card base and the image were also distressed and I added some shells.

Thank you again, Kirsty, for this great honor, and thanks for stopping by!

*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!

Steph :)
