Beach Babe

Good morning! I haven't got long... I need to start doing some food prep for the boss's dinner party this afternoon.  Since it's Tuesday, I just wanted to share a Tiddly Inks card I made last week using the new Wryn Beach Babe.  She's adorable... and just in time for summer!  We have a super easy challenge running at Tiddly Inks this fortnight... we want to see flowers on your Tiddly Inks creations.  Easy right?  No excuses not to join in!  

Here's my Wryn Beach Babe card:

Don't you just love her frilly bikini!  The papers I have used here are from October Afternoon (the old Boardwalk collection I think).  The ABC's card is from Pink Paisley and the sentiment is a stamp from Amy R's Summer Sentiments.  The charm and brad are from my stash.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

Here's a close-up of Wryn:

And here are the copics I used;

I used an interesting combo of BG's and a YG to get her bikini the right shade to match the paper.  I really love finding new copic combos!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Boots Challenges: Anything Goes and bowtastic
Love to Create: Add a sentiment
Fashionista Challenge: Simply Summer

And in other news... as many of you know already, Pollycraft will be closing on the 8th of June.  Paula is holding a farewell to Pollycraft linky party over on her blog... no prizes, just sharing your favourite or latest Pollycraft card with everyone.  We would love you to join in.  I've got a card I'm going to post for it tomorrow.

Don't forget to make use of the fabulous closing down sale!  You couldn't get a better deal on digis than this:

Ciao for now!
